Two possibilities I can think of that might work. First, strftime() from the 
C/C++ runtime support -- it has enough formatting options that you can make the 
result say almost anything, but the complexity might be more than you'd like. 
And second, CEEDAYS() and CEEDATE() from the ILE CEE APIs can probably do it 
also with an output date picture_string like 'Www, DD Mmm YYYY'; of course, 
time and offset are trivial after that.
