	Nothing, it's just the script that is slightly wrong. I developped
it on SunOS and awk that comes with does not require that I put
parenthesis around sprintf's parameters. It seems that other awks require
the parenthesis and that is what caused the error. So just change the
	completed=sprintf "%s/%02s/%02s %2s:%02s:%02s",d[3],d[1],d[2], \
	completed=sprintf("%s/%02s/%02s %2s:%02s:%02s",d[3],d[1],d[2], \

	Or reload the script from my Web site as I made some other
(minor) changes:

# 970717 - v1.0.1
# - Some awks require parameters of sprintf to be enclosed in
#   parenthesis which was not the case at "line 76".
# - Added some width specs so that things will always line up.
# - Added -h option which prints the usage.
# 970716 - v1.0.0
# - Initial release
