Welcome to batch programming ;)
There's a database vendor, which has an internal decimal number, which they use as a date. Example, 2.5 is 2 and a half day after a given fixed time. And if you put more decimals, you can also specify hours, minutes, seconds, thousands of seconds, million of seconds, etc. etc.
AFAIK, also in the C-language there is no official date format, is there ? I don't mean you cant invent one, I mean C has not provided this. Same with Java, is it ?
