The date is a piece of temporal data relating to a beginning (year 1) and whose writing varies according to the countries and cultures which have therefore generated, during their existence, different date writing formats. Even today, different scriptures persist.
Bay convention, dd is the day number, mm is the month number, yyyy is the 4-digit year number and yy the last 2 digits of the year number.
Example: The Friday 31st of December 1999 or 12-31-1999 can be also written: Friday, Dec 31st 1999, December 31, 1999, 31-Dec-1999, 12-31-1999 (mm-dd-yyyy), 1999-12-31 (yyyy-mm-dd), etc.
dCode converter is limited to the years between 1970 and 2037 (32bits date standard).
In 1988, the ISO8601 was created to avoid any risk of confusion during communications between international users. This standard specifies that the date format should be yyyy-mm-dd.
— dd/mm/yyyy is the usual format in Germany, Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Croatia, Denmark, Spain, France, Greece, India, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, United Kingdom , Russia, Sweden or European Union documents
— mm/dd/yy or mm/dd/yyyy is the most common format in the United States
— yyyy-mm-dd is the universally used format in computing and databases and is used in South Africa, Saudi Arabia, China, United Arab Emirates, Japan, Norway, Qatar, Sweden or Taiwan. It has the advantage of allowing intuitive date sorting (considering the date as an 8-digit number, a past date will have a lower number than a present or future date - ISO 8601 standard)
The dates are sometimes completed by the name of the day or even the time and/or the time zone.
