	DateToStr -- Converts a DateStamp to a string (V36)

	success = DateToStr( datetime )
	D0                      D1

	BOOL DateToStr(struct DateTime *)

	DateToStr converts an AmigaDOS DateStamp to a human
	readable ASCII string as requested by your settings in the
	DateTime structure.

	DateTime - a pointer to an initialized DateTime structure.

	The DateTime structure should be initialized as follows:

	dat_Stamp - a copy of the datestamp you wish to convert to

	dat_Format - a format	byte which specifies the format	of the
		  dat_StrDate.	This can be any	of the following
		  (note: If value used is something other than those
		  below, the default of	FORMAT_DOS is used):

		  FORMAT_DOS:	  AmigaDOS format (dd-mmm-yy).

		  FORMAT_INT:	  International	format (yy-mmm-dd).

		  FORMAT_USA:	  American format (mm-dd-yy).

		  FORMAT_CDN:	  Canadian format (dd-mm-yy).

		  FORMAT_DEF:	  default format for locale.

	dat_Flags - a	flags byte.  The only flag which affects this
		  function is:

		  DTF_SUBST:	  If set, a string such	as Today,
				  Monday, etc.,	will be	used instead
				  of the dat_Format specification if
		  DTF_FUTURE:	  Ignored by this function.

	dat_StrDay - pointer to a buffer to receive the day of the
		  week string.	(Monday, Tuesday, etc.). If null, this
		  string will not be generated.

	dat_StrDate -	pointer	to a buffer to receive the date
		  string, in the format	requested by dat_Format,
		  subject to possible modifications by DTF_SUBST.  If
		  null,	this string will not be	generated.

	dat_StrTime -	pointer	to a buffer to receive the time	of day
		  string. If NULL, this	will not be generated.

	success	- a zero return indicates that the DateStamp was
		  invalid, and could not be converted.	Non-zero
		  indicates that the call succeeded.

	DateStamp(), StrtoDate(), <dos/datetime.h>
