NAME

ns_buildsqldate - Build a SQL date value from specified month, day, and year

SYNOPSIS

ns_buildsqldate month day year

DESCRIPTION

This command builds a SQL date string out of the specified month, day, and year. The month can be the month number (1 - 12) or the full, capitalized month name (January, February, ..., December). The day must be a number from 1 - 31, and the year must be a 4-digit year (e.g., 1957). An error is returned if any of the argument values are invalid. The resulting string can be used in an SQL statement.

EXAMPLES

   % ns_buildsqldate "01" "15" "1929"
   1929-01-15
   % ns_buildsqldate "13" "31" "2000"
   Invalid date: 13 31 2000
       while executing ...
   % set thedate ns_buildsqldate "January" "15" "1929"
   % ns_db dml $db "INSERT INTO mytable (datefield) VALUES (ns_dbquotevalue $thedate)"
