I cannot make heads or tails out of this format.

What is the logic that I am missing?  How do I convert it to "regular" local format?

of course for īregularī local time, you would set clock type to īlocalī or īlocationī.  

curious, the īuniversalī clock type isnīt UTC or UT1 (near as i can tell).  itīs something else.  help docs cite (or, which is offline.

so iīm with you now.  iīm not sure how this format works.

itīs great that there are so many optional clock types (GMST, LMST, Julian, et al.).  local mean sideral time probably being the most useful addition.  cool stuff.

It I recall correctly (itīs been a few years since I coded it)

Code comments are wonderful things - here is what I noted in the code.

//Converts The DateTime loaded with UTC into Metric Time as Proposed by
//The Following Formats provied the following UTD type strings
//U = U<year> <day>,<time>
//W = U<year> w<week>-<day#>,<time>
//u = U<year> <day> <time>.<time fraction>
//w = U<year> w<week>-<day#>,<time>.<time fraction>
//D = d<day>,<time>
//d = d<day>,<time>.<time fraction>
//V = w<week>-<day#>,<time>
//v = w<week>-<day#>,<time>.<time fraction>
//T = t<time>
//t = t<time>.<time fraction>

World Time and Vista
I have been using World Time for a year or so on two of my systems (1 Win2K and 1 Win-XP) and itīs worked quite well. I have just got a new notebook with (Ugghhhh) MS-Vista and after downloading and installing WT and attempting to start it up ... it freezes with the message "Not Responding" and then terminates. Is there an issue with WT running under Vista?

I donīt have any Vista based machines so I havenīt tested it - but the not responding on startup tends to be related to the timesync.exe application. Check and ensure Vista isnīt blocking it.

It could also be the hook that attempts to show the time in the windowīs title bar - that may also be causing some kind of violation in Vista.

To confirm, I have Vista ultimate and have the same problem. Some message flashes by as the install tries to start and then nothing. No error, no window, nothing it is like I did not begin the install.

I agree with joetablaīs post.

The application is very flexible and I display different formats just because I like seeing what they are rather than having to go look them up when I want to know.
