- I have a need to specify something like "every day at 01:00". I don't
see a format that does that. Recurring intervals don't do it, because
it's not an interval. Or it _is_ an interval, but it doesn't have a
_complete_ starting (or ending) point.
"R/P1D" will do the recurring one day interval, but to add the time
I'd also need to specify the date, e.g. "R/2004-12-21T01:00:00/P1D"
and that's not what I want, I'd want to leave out the date.
Of course I'm going from the 2004-12-19 version, does a newer version
allow for an incomplete timepoint in a recurring interval? Has anyone
out there simply gone ahead and done this even though it may be non-
Another option of course is to have two values, one for the recurring
interval and one for the... ummm... anchor time-of-day.
Other concerns would be to be able to specify "every Sunday", other
than having a Sunday timepoint and "P7D" or "P1W".
- OK, no reponses in a week. I was rereading the spec again yesterday
and finally noticed section 5.5.5 "Representations other than
complete". It seems I _can_ use something like "-W-7T01:00:00/P1W"
where the date and time are truncated (incomplete) but are still
valid under 5.2, 5.3, and 5.4, yay!
How such a beast is interpreted is up to the partners in information
interchange (me, myself, and I). For the purpose at hand I use it to
say "Once a week, on Sunday, at 1AM". Now I just need to write the
routines for handlng it (the fun part).
