Date Class

Gets the creation date.
Set document’s creation date.
Gets the mod date.
Set document’s modification date.
The Date class is a utility class used to simplify work with PDF date objects. PDF defines a standard date format, which closely follows international standard ASN.1 (Abstract Syntax Notation One), A date is a string of the form (D:YYYYMMDDHHmmSSOHH'mm'); See PDF Reference Manual for details. Date can be associated with a SDF/Cos date string using Date(Obj*) constructor or later using Date::Attach(Obj*) or Date::Update(Obj*) methods. Date keeps a local date/time cache so it is necessary to call Date::Update() method if the changes to the Date should be saved in the attached Cos/SDF string.
