DT_Format generates a formatted string representation of the rmDate values.
rmDate is a real matrix.
ssFormat is a scalar string. The formatting string is similar to the printf formatting string. Formatting codes, preceded by a percent (%) sign, are replaced by the corresponding date/time component. Other characters in the formatting string are copied unchanged to the returned string. The value and meaning of the formatting codes for DT_Format are listed below:
|%a||Abbreviated weekday name|
|%A||Full weekday name|
|%b||Abbreviated month name|
|%B||Full month name|
|%c||Date and time representation appropriate for locale|
|%d||Day of month as decimal number (01 to 31)|
|%H||Hour in 24-hour format (00 to 23)|
|%I||Hour in 12-hour format (01 to 12)|
|%j||Day of year as decimal number (001 to 366)|
|%m||Month as decimal number (01 to 12)|
|%M||Minute as decimal number (00 to 59)|
|%p||Current locale’s A.M./P.M. indicator for 12-hour clock|
|%S||Second as decimal number (00 to 59)|
|%U||Week of year as decimal number, with Sunday as first day of week (00 to 51)|
|%w||Weekday as decimal number (0 to 6; Sunday is 0)|
|%W||Week of year as decimal number, with Monday as first day of week (00 to 51)|
|%x||Date representation for current locale|
|%X||Time representation for current locale|
|%y||Year without century, as decimal number (00 to 99)|
|%Y||Year with century, as decimal number|
|%z, %Z||Time zone name or abbreviation; no characters if time zone is unknown|
The format argument consists of one or more codes; as in printf, the formatting codes are preceded by a percent sign (%). Characters that do not begin with % are copied unchanged to strDest. The LC_TIME category of the current locale affects the output formatting. (For more information on LC_TIME, see DT_SetLocale.) The formatting codes are listed below:
As in the printf function, the # flag may prefix any formatting code. In that case, the meaning of the format code is changed as follows.
%#a, %#A, %#b, %#B, %#p, %#X, %#z, %#Z, %#%: # flag is ignored.
%#c: Long date and time representation, appropriate for current locale. For example: "Tuesday, March 14, 1995, 12:41:29".
%#x: Long date representation, appropriate to current locale. For example: "Tuesday, March 14, 1995".
%#d, %#H, %#I, %#j, %#m, %#M, %#S, %#U, %#w, %#W, %#y, %#Y: Remove leading zeros (if any).
