Gridgen Is Year 2000 Compliant
BEDFORD, TX (14 September 1998) –
Pointwise is pleased to announce that Gridgen is Year 2000 Compliant
according to the following terms, provided that all other
products (e.g., hardware, software, firmware) used with Gridgen
are also Year 2000 Compliant.
Gridgen's functions, calculations, and other computing
"processes" perform in a consistent manner regardless of
the date in time on which the processes are actually performed and
regardless of the "date data" input to Gridgen, whether
before, on, during, or after 01 January 2000 and whether or not the
date data is affected by leap years.
Gridgen will function without interruptions caused by the date in
time on which the processes are actually performed or by the date
data input to Gridgen, whether before, on, during, or after 01
Pointwise is fully committed to ensuring that all future releases
of Gridgen will remain Year 2000 Compliant.
Gridgen uses the Elan License Manager (ELM).
The following details are provided by Elan Computer Group
(Mountain View, CA) for their ELM code and the year 2000:
Any and all keys generated with any release of ELM will
work properly past the year 2000.
The ELM log file lists only the last two digits of the
year. If you have developed in-house tools that read
this log file, your tools should be modified to take care
of century conversions.
The ELM reporting tools (elmrpt, xelmrpt, and winrpt) work
correctly with any year, except when a log file has both
1900 and 2000 years in it.
