Get Day, Month, and Year

The following works for both "dd/mm/yyyy" and "mm/dd/yyyy":

@echo off
@rem NEWSGROUP: microsoft.public.win2000.cmdprompt.admin
@rem SUBJECT  : How can i to get the current month in commandline?
@rem WHEN/WHO : Mar 14 2001, 9:05 pm  post by Michael (maj0)

:: Tokenise date into dd mm and yy independent of locale
for /f "tokens=2-4 delims=.:/-, " %%i in ("%date%") do (
  for /f "tokens=2-4 delims=/-,() skip=1" %%l in ('echo.^|date') do (
    set %%l=%%i
    set %%m=%%j
    set %%n=%%k))


:: Lets see what we got!
for %%i in (dd mm yy) do set %%i
