I didn't quite know where to post this, I apologize if it's in the wrong spot.
I was looking into Date stuff (I was trying to remember if DM has a date parser built in, to convert a "world.realtime" to something meaningful to humans), and I found Polaris's Date Functions library (http://www.byond.com/developer/Polaris8920/DateFunctions). The library appears to be "legit", included in the DM.libraries, but, when I run the demo, it's just plain wrong. For one thing, the default PST timezone that it starts on gives the time as -1:60 AM, whereas my timezone gives the time as 1:60 AM. (The time is currently 10:43 PM CST)
Does anyone know what the deal with this library is? I feel like it wouldn't be in DM.libraries if it was just worthless. Could the issue be on my side? (My own computer clock is wrong by several hours, but I can't imagine that'd matter...)
Is there a built-in function, or another library that provides similar features? (Right now, I'm really only -needing- the date parser. But the other features, like Date math, might come in handy down the road)
