:-) At least you're still tossing jokes.

After a time... My test C/C++ file names became various obscene phrases.

If you've not found it, there is a relatively popular C++ header only 
'date.h' (and 'tz.*') for c++11/C++14/C++17. I looked at it briefly, but 
then bailed for a simpler c/unix only path.

See: https://github.com/HowardHinnant/date

My take is the license would allow POV-Ray to use it.

Aside: What code analysis tool is picking up the thread safe issues for 
you? I became aware these existed as I played - and I tried to handle 
them/be immune(where parser only use), but, I didn't got so far as to 
add a mutex variable & a lock guard. Suppose that would be the 
paranoid/safe approach - these time related functions are all going to 
be slow in any case - but, I didn't go that far.
