Here is the example of setdate usage from the manual:
Both these statements set the date to March 7, 1985...
Of course what you are getting at is 1910 as opposed to 2010. But that is not a leap year either.
I guess I was not seeing the obvious implication of your question in my first response.
Here we go... From the reference manual:
For numeric date inputs and for date string inputs, if you use the two-digit year format, and if:
* 60 <= YY <= 99, then YY = YY + 1900
* 0 <= YY <= 59, then YY = YY + 2000
So I guess the HP71B is Y2K safe <g>.
