[Date->Hour] is an accessor for getting or setting the hour field for a date object.
Getting uses no parameters and returns the hour as an integer.
Setting requires an integer parameter, and supports the =, += and -= operators. Setting modifies the date object in-place, but does not return a value.
Date Object->hour Date Object->hour=Integer Date Object->hour+=Integer Date Object->hour-=Integer
Use the [Date->Hour] method. The following example uses a single date object, then gets the hour and returns its value.
Next we set the hour field to a new value using the = operator, then set it again by adding 1 to the hour using the += operator, and set it once more by subtracting 1 from the hour using the -= operator. We return the result for each set operation.
local(d) = date('2011-02-21 08:00:00') #d->hour + '<br>' #d->hour=5 #d + '<br>' #d->hour+=1 #d + '<br>' #d->hour-=1 #d
