What's the 'common' calendar format in different parts of the world? Here in the states we typically represent the date using a MM/DD/YY format but I seem to recall that a DD/MM/YY format is preferred in Europe.
Internationally that's the standard. I've been programming professionally and internationally for around ten years and working with open source software projects for longer and find that it's just easier to go with this system, especially if your software has to interact with other software written by other people.Mike said:That method certainly lends itself well for 'sort' and 'compare' operations, as Nigel mentioned.
Thanks a lot guys. I will take these methods into account when designing software...
