This is not about HSQL but about Basic.
Andrew is almost never wrong and Regina is never wrong so i'm at a
loss about this atm.
There are lot of areas, where I likely wrong. And in Basic I'm sure no
I have looked a little bit into the code. It seems, that a Basic type
'date' is the same as com::sun::star::bridge::oleautomation struct Date.
But I do not find, where the conversion to string happens.
I know that I can use a SQL Date type, but the regular Date type behaves
like a double in every case that I have tested.... Note that I cannot
say that I have tested some of the odd cases such as setting the date a
day or two before some big jump based on date changes in history. I have
special routines to convert between the SQL struct. I just did not
expect a Basic Intrinsic Date to convert to a string. I expected it
would auto-convert to Double on return.
If the Basic internals is using a struct rather than a Double as I
thought, then it makes much more sense that it would convert to a string.
I think that I need to document the behavior.
