8.7.7 Date Formats
The `d d' (`calc-date-notation') command controls the display of date
forms (Note: Date Forms). It prompts for a string which contains
letters that represent the various parts of a date and time. To show
which parts should be omitted when the form represents a pure date with
no time, parts of the string can be enclosed in `< >' marks. If you
don't include `< >' markers in the format, Calc guesses at which parts,
if any, should be omitted when formatting pure dates.
The default format is: `<H:mm:SSpp >Www Mmm D, YYYY'. An example
string in this format is `3:32pm Wed Jan 9, 1991'. If you enter a
blank format string, this default format is reestablished.
Calc uses `< >' notation for nameless functions as well as for
dates. Note: Specifying Operators. To avoid confusion with nameless
functions, your date formats should avoid using the `#' character.
