Another date/zone inconsistency

 [1/2] from: pwawood::mango::net::my at: 16-Jan-2005 17:10


It seems that to-date ignores a timezone without a preceeding plus or minus sign whereas directly setting the timezone allows an unsigned timezone :
>> rdate: to-date "31-12-9999 23:59:59 8:00"
== 31-Dec-9999/23:59:59
>> rdate/zone
== 0:00
>> rdate/zone: 8:00
== 8:00
>> rdate/zone
== 8:00 Regards Peter

Hi PeterWAWood, On Sunday, January 16, 2005, 10:10:39 AM, you wrote: P> It seems that to-date ignores a timezone without a preceeding plus or minus P> sign whereas directly setting the timezone allows an unsigned timezone : I guess when converting a string REBOL is being more strict, i.e. it is applying more validation. Whether this is desirable or not is probably debatable... I'd say, submit to RAMBO. Regards, Gabriele. -- Gabriele Santilli <g.santilli-tiscalinet.it> -- REBOL Programmer Amiga Group Italia sez.
