Date/Time Utility Function Overview
The Date/Time extension contains a collection of modules allowing you to parse, validate, manipulate, and format human readable or machine readable dates and/or times in Bridge.
There are five high-level operations that can be achieved using this extension: Getting, Setting, Checking, Comparing, and Formatting dates and/or times. Dates and Times are represented by a structured Date/Time Object and Durations (differences between two dates) are represented using Duration Object – both can be passed from one module to another.
E.g. Say we want to get the start of the current business quarter in the standard 'ISO-8601' format, we can get the current time using the Current Date/Time Module, pass the output to the Round Date/Time Module to set the date to the start of the quarter, and then use the Format Date/Time Module to output the Date/Time object into a formatted string – in this case 'ISO-8601'.
