Additional Comments

Use the english keyword to use a date in an invariant format that is guaranteed not to change when the stack is moved to another system, or when users change their system preferences.

Comments:

You can use the english keyword in combination with the long, abbreviated, or short keywords. The english keyword must come before the long, abbreviated, or short keyword.

A long English date looks like this: Thursday, June 22, 2000

An abbreviated English date looks like this: Thu, Jan 22, 2000

A short English date looks like this: 1/22/00

A long English time looks like this: 11:22:47 AM

An abbreviated English time or short English time looks like this: 11:22 AM

Note: The englishkeyword is implemented internally as a property and appears in the propertyNames. However, it cannot be used as a property in an expression, nor with the setcommand.

Changes to Revolution:

The ability to use the short, abbreviated, or long keywords in conjunction with the english keyword was introduced in version 1.1. In previous versions, the english keyword was equivalent to the long keyword.
