"big linux" date command seems to like a single format when you are
setting the date
that is [MMDDhhmm[[CC]YY][.ss]]
if I do "date --help" in busybox it says:
Recognized TIME formats:
which doesn't seem to allow for MMDDhhmmCCYY
however when I experiment with
it all seems to work as desired.
I think it's good that busybox should support the standard string format -
if you agree can it be added to the help info?
