Is there a way to show the first 9 days of the month as 01, 02, 03 etc. \the\day prints 1, 2, 3 etc.

  • I think scrdate can do that with ease. Can you show us some code so we know how you want to use the date (and where). – Johannes_B Dec 1 '14 at 8:40
  • Using \the\day will always use 1, 2 and so on, because \the is a primitive command that can't be modified. In what situation do you want this “two digit form” to be used? – egreg Dec 1 '14 at 9:03

  \ifnum\day<10 0\fi
  \the\day
  • David, I think it should be \ifnum\day<10 0\the\day\fi – Reza Dec 1 '14 at 12:12
  • @Reza that would make no output if the day is over 10. The code shown always uses 2 digits for the day. – David Carlisle Dec 1 '14 at 12:33
  • David, you are right. – Reza Dec 1 '14 at 12:44
