Hello team, today I had a look at bug #619286 at the sf-bugtracker and I am not completly sure how to handle that bugreport. I had a look at the source code and also locally modified my source code to get a better impression of the occuring changes. The guy, who wrote this bugreport, suggested that we should use FORMAT_DEF instead of FORMAT_DOS for the DateStamp2String() function in YAM_UT.c. And after I tested it here and also thought about it for a minute I also vote for changing this because it makes more sense to me to depend on the locale preferences than forcing the user to always have the date displayed within the AmigaDOS format. For all ppl in here who don`t know exactly what FORMAT_DOS and FORMAT_DEF stands for. This is a simple identifier that defines how a date should be converted into a string. Here is the definition: --- cut here --- #define FORMAT_DOS 0 /* dd-mmm-yy */ #define FORMAT_INT 1 /* yy-mm-dd */ #define FORMAT_USA 2 /* mm-dd-yy */ #define FORMAT_CDN 3 /* dd-mm-yy */ #define FORMAT_MAX FORMAT_CDN #define FORMAT_DEF 4 /* use default format, as defined by locale; if locale not available, use FORMAT_DOS instead */ --- cut here --- Actually YAM displays the Date within the MailListview within the FORMAT_DOS format, but IMHO it seems more logical to change that to the FORMAT_DEF and let Locale do the job for us. So people from different countries will have their own local date representation displayed within YAM. So, if no one in here has a big argument against changing this to FORMAT_DEF, I will commit my changes ASAP. cheers, jens -- Jens Langner Ph: +49-351-4716545 Lannerstrasse 1 01219 Dresden Jens.Langner@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx Germany http://www.jens-langner.de/ Once you open a can of worms, the only way to recan them is to use a larger can (old worms never die, they just worm their way into larger cans). -- Zymurgy's first law of evolving system dynamics _______________________________________________________________________ YAMOS developers mailing list - http://www.freelists.org/list/yamos-dev Listserver help.......: yamos-dev-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx, subject "HELP" Unsubscribe....: yamos-dev-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx, subject "UNSUBSCRIBE"
