  • Compatible Julian Date Function

    Recently, I down loaded Ian Cairns long integer version of Egbert Zijlema's Julian conversion routines (titled: "Easter Calculation") from the Source Code forum. The routines work very well, indeed.

    The great part is that with the DateToJulian PB function I am able to match exactly the results from the built-in FoxPro sys(11) Julian date conversion function.

    I am presently re-writing a FoxPro application to PB/DLL. This function is going to save me quite a few hours as I will not have to change program logic in those parts of the FoxPro program that use Julian dates.

    My thanks to Egbert and Ian.

    In Windows32 it is possible to use a different method, provided by the Windows API. It does not work, however, for calendar dates before January 1, 1601.
    If you are interested, drop me an e-mail and I'll send you the code.
    BTW: If more people are interested I may post it in the source code forum as well.
