I agree, examples may be helpful. And a lot more work could be put
into the Fox documentation. But then: creating a foxfilter function is
a coding issue. You need to know something about PHP. Still, one
example would be good there.
But I don't quite like this example with the call to DateTime, as
DateTime is a method to create an object, and I never quite understand
object oriented programming. All the fox.php code is old-fashioned
process oriented. If Fox was written with Objects it may be a lot
better code, but I could not have done it. So there is my limitation!
