10.2.5 Year 10000 (Y10K) Problems

Most intrinsics returning, or computing values based on, date information are prone to Year-10000 (Y10K) problems, due to supporting only 4 digits for the year.

See the following for examples: 8.11.9.102 FDate Intrinsic (function), 8.11.9.101 FDate Intrinsic (subroutine), 8.11.9.138 IDate Intrinsic (UNIX), 10.5.2.134 Time Intrinsic (VXT), 8.11.9.60 Date_and_Time Intrinsic.
