"SortableDate.sh" takes advantage of the following shell scripts, which are also available on this site. So to use the this script, you will need to download these other scripts if you don't already have them.

SortableDate.sh [ -f ] [ -u ]
Specify "-f" to format the display without special symbols.
Specify "-u" to display the output in UTC (Coordinated Universal) time.
I modified "SortableDate.sh" so that when you issue the "-f" flag, it would output time without the ':' symbol. Somehow, I had forgotten to implement that last time. the new version is attached below.
