Video: C Programming on System 6 - Parsing RFC822 Dates

posted on oct 16th, 2020 with tags mac, retrocomputing, and video
part of C Programming on System 6 series

I wrote a utility function to parse RFC822 dates/times sent by the IMAP server, which then converts them to a UTC time. In this video, I hook it into the IMAP parser and add a resource string for the local timezone offset setting, so these UTC times can then be converted to a local time and displayed in the message list.
