People, I've come across a bug in Basic09 that is related to our Y2K 

It is the DATE$ function.
If I issue the command:


in my Basic09 programme, it returns:

:6/08/12 20:50:00

It *should* either return:

106/08/12 20:50:00
06/08/12 20:50:00
2006/08/12 20:50:00

Has anyone looked at patching Basic09 (and RunB) to deal with this issue?
