    Yeah, there's bunches. I know that some Thai's use a funky calendar, so I did a search on Google for "calendar thai gregorian," followed a link to Cyndi's List - Calendars & Dates, and finally found Cumberland Family Software's Universal Calendar Converter.

    Three caveats:
    • Windows-only (written in Clarion, FWIW)
    • It's a great example of how NOT to design a user interface
    • They're charging $25 bucks for it, and two other programs

    When I get some gumption (I'm fresh out), I'll write a calendar converter in perl (or whatnot).

    C▓
    Oh, yeah, I was disappointed that they didn't have Aztec, Mayan, or Incan dates. That's why I'll write one, if for no other reason.

[Corion]: marto: How's things? I hope the kids are fine and you too!
[Corion]: Oh yay. I wonder why a very simple change in a program doesn't elicit a diff, and now I see that my diff program seems to have a bug ;)
[1nickt]: marto thanks for asking, so far so good. A pretty modern stack and decent procedures, although rather too much home-built stuff (e.g. a logging role that should tries to duplicate Log::Any).
[Corion]: No. It's just that I'm comparing the same output file twice, instead of comparing the output files of the two runs %-)
[Corion]: Lo and behold, running a program with the correct input files yields the correct (and expected) output. Yay me.
[1nickt]: Got a MacBook and am expected to develop directly on it, ironic given the recent thread about that.
[marto]: Corion, some not too serious issues with the kids, hopefully, other than that just dealing with commuting by car again in the winter, not much fun so far, and there's no real 'bad' weather yet :)
[marto]: 1nickt, glad to hear it, I'm sure you'll bring improvements to their stack in due course ;)
