This is one for the c74 staff primarily.
on a mac:
[date] reports the time correctly.
[mxj now] reports the time correctly.
on windows xp:
[date] reports greenwich mean time, no matter what the location you set on the 'time' control panel. Evidently [date] does not talk to the Windows API.
[mxj now] reports the local time, but without accounting for daylight savings.
I believe this inconsistency between platforms should be addressed, as it's very annoying from a cross-platform development perspective. Although I guess nothing can be done about [mxj now], perhaps the [date] problem can be looked at.
