Note: If you got here using a web search engine, you can find the program here.

Disclaimer: Although "Date & Time OSAX" seems to work fine, it is distributed "as is". Use at your own risk. So there.

Date & Time is an AppleScript scripting addition that lets you get more specific format dates and times than the standard AppleScipt "current date". Well, maybe not more specific, but you won't have to write some nasty conversion routine just to get a particular format. You can get the date in long, short, or abbreviated formats and you can get the time or the time with seconds. It (hopefully) uses the format specified by the user in the "Date & Time" control panel. To use, drop it into the "Scripting Additions" folder located in your Extenstions folder.

Look in the "dictionary" for the semi-official syntax.

If you have any questions, comments, (constructive) criticism, or bug reports please let me know. You can contact me at the address(es) below.
