[procedure] date [time tz]

Scsh: without args, returns current date. See make-date. (NB: Scsh's date is like struct tm, not like SRFI-19's.)

If time is given, convert it to date. If tz is given, use it as a timezone string (localtime default).

See also time.

SRFI-19 has current-date, and time-utc->date.

Gauche has sys-gmtime and sys-localtime.
