The getDate() command checks the date that the calculator is set to, and then returns it in a list format. The list will always be in the format {year, month, day}. To change this list to another format, you can use the closely related getDtStr() option, which just returns the date in a string format, not as a list. The setDtFmt() command does not work on this command, but it will change the format that the calculator returns the getDtStr() command as.

For example, if the calculator's date was set to March 14th, 2011, the getDate() command would return the following:

:     {2011 3 14}
