And exactly where was it called from? I am guessing localtime( which explains
the resulting 0-11 reported. Same can be said for other sources of localtime(
such as perl, python, etc. They are all based on time.h.
Where is your software getting the date and time from?
RS> The date field you're referring to is in a "packed message"

Understood but I was just using that as an example that the two digit year used
in packed message header didn't need to be a two digit year which is contained
in the string output for the DateTime field. In other words the format was
bogus given that fact and could eaily be the cause of the poorly designed and
deployed fts-4008 aka TZUTC.

Sorrow and sleep both together often bind the wretched solitary person.
