Date Formatting

In Control Panel Regional settings a short date STYLE can be set. This can be used to change the date separator, the order (e.g. dd/mm/yyyy or mm/dd/yyyy) and the number of characters used to display days and months.

Date Format information in the registry

The Country Code is a setting in the registry:

This can be read using REG.exe as follows

FOR /F "TOKENS=3 delims=	" %%G IN ('REG QUERY "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\International\iCountry"') DO (SET _country=%%G)

The date separator is also a registry setting

This can be read using REG.exe as follows

FOR /F "TOKENS=3 delims=	" %%G IN ('REG QUERY "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\International\sDate"') DO SET _date_sep=%%G

If Command Extensions are disabled DATE will not support the /T switch
