Hello everybody,

Back to LC after a long time out. I’m using LC 9.6.0(dp 4) on Mac OS 10.15.4, and I just discovered that Livecode seems totally deaf to the words “system date”. EG:

put the date into today
convert today to system date
put today into fld 1

returns 5/4/20 instead of 04.05.20

Is "system date" deprecated?
