Formatting date/time is a very common task and having either the comment from Date >> printOn: format:
"Print a description of the receiver on aStream using the format
denoted the argument, formatArray:
#(item item item sep monthfmt yearfmt twoDigits)
items: 1=day 2=month 3=year will appear in the order given,
separated by sep which is eaither an ascii code or character.
monthFmt: 1=09 2=Sep 3=September
yearFmt: 1=1996 2=96
digits: (missing or)1=9 2=09.
in the Class comment or pointer to the above information would shorten learning times for newbies like me.
Fwiw, I hit the Swiki, stack-exchange pharo discussion which led me to Terse guide example of a related method which then got me to the information I needed.
thx for your consideration.
