Year 2000 in a Nutshell (In a Nutshell (OReilly)) by Norman Shakespeare

Whether you are a manager, a programmer, or even a user faced with the Year-2000 date compliance issue, Year 2000 in a Nutshell will help guide you through this crisis. This essential reference guide addresses three main aspects of the Year 2000 computer dilemma: Awareness: covers compliance, costs, event-horizons, embedded dates and systems, date-stamping, timing, staffing, and benefits of Y2K conversion Managerial: covers triage (when the Y2K conversion process isnt started soon enough), legal issues, budgets, and standards; also covers a project-plan: inventory, analysis, logistical estimates, planning and strategies, conversion, and testing and implementation Technical: covers dates, Julian day, windowing, single-digit century, file and database date conversion, and PC issues In addition, this book provides reference information on the date and time functions in those languages most likely to be affected by Year 2000 problems, including Cobol, PL/1, and Visual Basic. This information is valuable for those programmers forced to dredge up old skills to analyze or revise code that may not be Year 2000 compliant. Because Cobol is particularly likely to be a problem, the book also includes a complete Cobol quick reference for programmers who need to make the Cobol code Y2K compliant, but havent had much experience with the Cobol language.
