RinexDates now incompatible with FixDatTGO
After Chris changed RinexDates to cope with leap year, we have a problem. Instead of subtracting six years as before, he now subtracts 5 years to keep the day of the week the same.
FixDatTGO only changes the week number, it doesn’t try to keep the date the same, although it did do that prior to 2/29/2012 to work with RinexDates. It was subtracting 6 years.
So, trying to use rinex data and dat files will no longer work, they are in different years after being modified.
One idea would be to check if the date is later than 2/28/2012, and subtract 5 years instead of 6. However, since the GPS system (and TGO) works with week numbers and seconds of the week, I would rather keep mine as is, and hopefully RinexDates could modify the way they do it?
Or I could put an option in to chose the year offset? In actuality, as far as using the dat file in TGO it could be any week before the 1 billion seconds, I just picked 6 years to be compatible with RinexDates.
