Patch Proposal: Adds $dow and $week (number) vars to the GMTIME var

Motivation

I needed the calendar week number and the day_of_week number in some of my applications.

Description

Adds $dow and $week (number) vars to the GMTIME variable.

Documentation

$dow day of week (number) ranges 0-6
$week calendar week number ranges 1-53 (ISO 8601)

Examples

%GMTIME{
Day of week: $dow ($wday)
CW: $week
}%

Implementation

Any comments on how the patch is implemented or could be improved

Note: Patch is attached as http://twiki.org/p/pub/Codev/DowAndWeekNumberInGmTime/TWiki.pm.dow-week.diff. The patch is against the svn rep #3566.


Discussion:

SMELL: Are there really two places in the code (TWikiDotPm and SpreadSheetPlugin) where date/time formatting happens?

BTW: This patch can easily be added to the SpreadSheetPlugin too! wink

My colleague AlexanderStedile patched the patch (does this make it a patch2 ?) so that it now works fine without side effects.

Thanks FranzJosefSilli. I found the bug, too, but was too busy to repair and doc it yet.
