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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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 January 2000.

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:

  1. Any and all keys generated with any release of ELM will work properly past the year 2000.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
