Description

could you pls use the international date format yyyy-mm-dd on the trac hack site? if you need evidence why, you might want to check on http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/iso-time.html.

the simplest way seems to set a country which uses this format, like china, or germany by

Hmm, that is a good idea, but de_DE does not use iso8601 as far as I can see:

[root@swapoff:~]LANG=de_DE date +%x
17.04.2006

I also tried i18n, which according to #T1690 is supposed to work, but to no avail.

Interesting, most of us get non-traditional format in ls -l, maybe that confused ThurnerRupert. For what it's worth, the Hungarian locale may come to rescue:

$ unset LC_ALL; LANG=hu_HU date +%x
2006-05-03

Pity about the time format :(

[athomas@o2zeopslin01:~]LANG=hu_HU date +%X
11.33.26

LC_TIME=ro_RO doesn't work for me, but LC_TIME=en_DK does.

http://myy.helia.fi/~karte/international_iso-8601_date_on_thunderbird.html

$ LC_TIME=ro_RO date '+%x %X'
09.11.2006 01:41:49

$ LC_TIME=en_DK date '+%x %X'
