Hey Mike, put this into a new button object.
put the date into tToday
ask "Enter the date of birth as dd/mm/yy"
put it into tBorn
convert tToday to seconds
convert tBorn to seconds
put (tToday - tBorn) into tAge -- in seconds
-- now do the math in tAge
-- to determine how many years that is
answer "The age is" && tAge && "seconds old." & cr & cr \
& "You didn't expect me to do all of the math, now did you? :)"
