What does a database app with the resulting tuple?
It puts the values into struct fields for year, month, day, etc. (Databases usually avoid using Unix ticks since these cause the known problems with dates prior to 1970)
Hm, I thought that databases have their own date/time types? Aren't these used?
At C level, interfacing is usually done using structs (ISO SQL/CLI defines these).
