I have an application where users can enter the date via a web interface.
Recently I upgrated my PostgreSQL version from 7.3 to 7.4.1.
On 7.3 I run several tests about the format of the date and found,
that Postgres accepts almost everything. Today I found out, that 7.4.1
only accepts dates in the format mm-dd-yy, although the documentation
still states the following
Otherwise the date field ordering is assumed to follow the
DateStyle setting: mm-dd-yy, dd-mm-yy, or yy-mm-dd. Throw an error if a
month or day field is found to be out of range.
Does anyone know, if it is intentional to restrict it to mm-dd-yy format
or is is just a bug of 7.4.1?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions
