On Thu, 17 Feb 2005, Harald Harders uploaded an update to his isodate package. Location on CTAN: macros/latex/contrib/isodate License: LPPL >From the README: Tune the output format of dates. This package provides ten output formats of the commands \today, \printdate, \printdateTeX, and \daterange (partly language dependent): ISO (yyyy-mm-dd), numeric (e.g. dd.\,mm.~yyyy), short (e.g. dd.\,mm.\,yy), TeX (yyyy/mm/dd), original (e.g. dd. mmm yyyy), short original (e.g. dd. mmm yy), as well as numerical formats with Roman numerals for the month. The commands \printdate and \printdateTeX print any date. The date is given as an argument using the actual date format for output: \printdate{yyyy-mm-dd}, \printdate{dd.mm.yyyy}, or \printdate{dd/mm/yyyy}, and \printdateTeX{yyyy/mm/dd}. The command \daterange prints a date range and leaves out unnecessary year or month entries. E.g. 2000-05-03 to 2000-05-08 leads to `2000-05-03 to 08'. ChangeLog: 2005/02/17 v2.24 Harald Harders (h.harders at tu-bs.de) - Add option frenchb. 2004/11/19 v2.23 Harald Harders (h.harders at tu-bs.de) - Avoid to use the \texttt{calc} package since it causes problems with many other package's. Thanks for the update. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf
