lc_time_fmt (public)

 lc_time_fmt datetime fmt [ locale ]

Defined in packages/acs-lang/tcl/localization-procs.tcl

Formats a time for the specified locale.

Parameters:
datetime - A time string in one of the following formats as from clock tcl command specifications: "%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S", "%Y-%m-%d %H:%M" and "%Y-%m-%d". Database timestamps such as "2019-12-16 12:50:14.049896+01" are also tolerated, by normalizing them to "2019-12-16 12:50:14". Note that in this case all information about timezone and fractions of second will be discarded.
fmt - An ISO 14652 LC_TIME style formatting string. The highlighted functions localize automatically based on the user's locale; other strings will use locale-specific text but not necessarily locale-specific formatting.

locale (optional) - Locale identifier must be in the locale database
Returns:
A date formatted for a locale
Error:
Fails if given a non-existent locale or a malformed datetime. Impossible dates will be treated as per clock scan behavior and e.g. 29 Feb 1999 will be translated to 1st March, Monday, as it wasn't a leap year. The clock api takes care of the proper handling of Julian/Gregorian dates.
