Two questions

1. Whats the best way to store a date and time on
a basic card? I've currently coded it like this

' The Card Issue Date YYYYMMDD
Eeprom CardIssueDate As String*8

But what I would really like to do is to add a week or a month to the card using functions in the smartcard rather than the terminal. So I am wondering if there a better way to to stored a date for manipulation. I've tried DateTime but I just got a compile error I guess that data type is just for terminal programs.


I am resigned to the fact that I will have to package BCLOAD with my application. Is there a way I can pass the PCSC reader name rather than a COM port. Also what are the BCLOAD dependencies I need to package with my application for it to work?
