 +
 +^Call Parameters^^Return Parameters^^
 +|D0.B|$4C|D0.L|Error code.|
 +|D1.L|Set/read key.|D1.L|Date.|
 +|D2.B|Type date key.|D2.L|Preserved.|
 +|D3.W|Timeout.|D3.L|Preserved.|
 +|A0.L|Channel ID.|A0.L|Preserved.|

 +===== Errors =====
 +Any IOSS errors.
 +
 +===== Notes =====
 +  * All registers not shown above are not used on entry and are preserved on exit.
 +  * The value in D1.L should be one of:
 +    * -1 to read the date and set it in D1.
 +    * 0  to set the date to the current date.
 +    * value to set the date to 'value'.
 +  * D2.B should be set 0 for the update date and 2 for the backup date.
 +  * If the update date has been set by this trap it will not be reset when the file is closed.
 +  * The backup date can be altered even if the file has been opened for read only since that date is not stored in the file itself. 
 +
 +===== Example =====
 +The example below shows the use of this trap call to read a file's backup date. It is assumed that the channel ID is in A0.L.
 +
 +<code>
 +        moveq   #$4C,d0         ; IOF_DATE
 +        moveq   #-1,d1          ; Read date
 +        moveq   #2,d2           ; Backup date
 +        moveq   #-1,d3          ; Timeout
 +        trap    #3              ; Get the backup date to D1.L
 +        tst.l   d0              ; OK? . .
 +        bne.s   oops            ; . . NO!
 +
 +        ...                     ; Do something here.
