tricky. Perl, however, has some slick date manipulation functions. It's
been awhile, but I know I've done just what you want to do in a line or

for your solution.
It's been awhile since I've programmed in Perl, and I've never used the
Perl interface in NoteTab, so I've pretty much exhausted my knowledge of
the subject. I hope this helps!

- Hi John
There's not a date Object in clip language. It would be simple case of
re-interpreting all the date data.
It would be a nice clip but if I did it rather long.
