Hi Eliot, wanted the exact same thing, a short terse representation so
I made one that employs "present context" -- e.g., if it is same day as
today, just print the time, otherwise include both the Date and Time.
This should be extended so if it is outside the current year, then it
should include the year, otherwise not.
Here's the old method, which could use a update, since #makeUTC is no
longer necessary either..
| date |
(date := self asDate) makeUTC = Date today
[ self asTime
on: aStream ]
maPrint: ((date printFormat: #(2 1 3 $/ 1 2 1 ))
copyUpToLast: $/) ;
on: aStream ]
Another approach -- you could also play around with
