Thank you very much for your answer.
But I have found some lines which are not millenium compliant in the file
1) In some lines, there is '- 1900' writes directly, does it work for a year >=
2000 ? If it doesn't what is th correction to do ?
2) And in an other line there is a sprintf with 19%2d. I have replace it with a
%4d and a function which return us the year on 4 digits.
Could you please give me a solution for the first notes.
Thanks a lot for your help, and thank you very much for your first answer.
