Is the DateFormat read only?

A quick test seems to show that the DateFormat can’t be changed by a ‘set’ command.

How then can I force a date to be in a given format? I’m really thinking of the difference between US and European dates, i.e

d/m/y versus m/d/y

Obviously for some types of use, an LC program should be able to force the format for consistency’s sake, regardless of where in the world it’s being run.

Can it be done?
