You can compile or download the GNU coreutils, which include a better
version of `date'.

If you can be more precise about what you're calculating, you'll get
better answers.  If all you're doing is strftime(), look in the standard
Perl POSIX module, it has a strftime() that behaves almost exactly like
the C version.
