given a UNIX (ISO) timestamp, the function gets the date, the time, or the timestamp in the FileMaker Format

UNIX timestamp: 2013-01-15T12:25:00
D -> 15.1.2013
DT -> 15.1.2013 12:25:00
T -> 12:25:00

The input may be called ISO format rather than UNIX timestamp (number of seconds from an epoch).

Strange idea to write custom functions in other language than English...

Personnaly, i want to use it but don't understand.

in this case, it's better - since it uses the Swiss date-format... there are always problems with dates like 5.3.2017 - is it may or is it march...
