As far as I know, no special work was needed or done on Poplog to
make it Y2K compliant, insofar as it runs on Unix systems. (I don't
know about the windows NT version, but since that is used by
ISL/SPSS for Clementine I am pretty sure they will have had to fix

It may be that some users of pop-11 have developed applications
where they used only two digits for a year, but there's nothing
internal to the system which does that.

E.g. I used Pop-11 to write a command to the poplog editor Ved
to use the unix "cal" utility to display a calendar for a given year
or month. For my own convenience I allowed it to accept two digits
for the year. I've recently changed it to allow 00 to 49 to
represent years after 1999 and 50 to 99 to represent years up to
1999. To represent year 35 you use 0035!

Anyone who wishes can write their own version with a different
split, or insist on 4 digits for all years after 999. Mine is at

The help file is at

But that's a toy example

I don't know of anything else in Pop11/Poplog which uses two digits
for the year.
