Topic: Error in Help for routine ctime

The documentation states that CTIME will return time as "of length 24 and of the form ‘Sat Aug 19 18:13:14 1995’".  I get  date and time in the form "10/11/12 11:14:58"

Re: Error in Help for routine ctime

Just a thought, but maybe it is using the system default time format.  I know software like Borland's C++ Builder and Microsoft's Visual Studio change the format to meet system wide format preferences.

If the documentation had said it was the system default, this probably wouldn't be a bug.  I would venture to guess that the correct format would be generated on GNU/Linux, but, on Windows, it is actually wrapping a Windows function that returns the format harry witnessed.
