datetime – Change format of \today with commands for current time

Provides various different formats for the text created by the command \today, and also provides commands for displaying the current time (or any given time), in 12-hour, 24-hour or text format.

The package overrides babel’s date format, having its own library of date formats in different languages.

The package requires the fmtcount package.

This package is now obsolete and has been replaced by datetime2.
