‘Standard C DateTime Library’ by Lance Latham
It was with great sadness that I read this evening of the death of Lance Latham. His 1998 book ‘The Standard C Date/Time Library‘ is still an essential programming reference dealing with calendar conversion.
Lance was a frequent contributor to the Calndr-L mailing list and his comments were always humorous and informative. Although we only exchanged a few emails he always made time to share his knowledge and his passion for the subject. I can trace the seeds of my own project all the way back to reading the SCDTL for the first time. His work continues to be a huge inspiration – I will really miss him.
