If looking after internationalizing dates

Dear Linux user,

 

If you are looking after internationalizing dates, here is a paper which can interest you:

http://vouters.dyndns.org/tima/Linux-Calendars-Internationalizing_dates.html

 

It presents the current daytime in four different format:

1/ RFC822

2/ IMAP

3/ JALAALI (in use in Iran)

4/ HIJRI (Islamic calendar)

 

The code is C based and use the LC_TIME locale.

 

In the hope this will interest some of you.

Kind regards,

Philippe

Re: If looking after internationalizing dates

Since then the Japanese, official Indian, Chinese and Hebrew dates have been added. This is in case you need to internationalize a date according to local idiom, culture and traditions.

 

In the hope you will find interest with.

Re: If looking after internationalizing dates

I am not sure. But if you wish to gain market shares, you'd better present your software in local idioms. On my side, I keep very sensitive to local culture and traditions. My Web site you can query at http://vouters.dyndns.org/ is full of various internationalization aspects.

 

In the hope this can help you gain market shares.

Yours tryuly,

Philippe
