Park,

Thanks a lot for this package.

Unfortunately, when I compile it on my Windows XP Pro using VC++ 6.0 and run
it with
ruby 1.7.3 (2002-11-17) [i386-mswin32] it hangs after doing this:
---------------------------------------------------
C:\test\>ruby test.rb

test1
The current date is: Tue 12/31/2002
Enter the new date: (mm-dd-yy) 2002-01-01
The system cannot accept the date entered.

---------------------------------------------------

Please help.
Thanks and have a Very Happy New Year !
