description

   The tomdate format is year, month, day, hour, minute, second
   compressed and in that order:

     2007Jan07.15:14:42

   This program converts the date to the number of seconds since
   the calendar began.

   This is useful for comparing and graphing dates.
   However, the yeardecimal script is more useful.

   This program ought to be modified to give the yeardecimal kind of output,
   which is the year followed by the decimal part of the year.
