I think it's less ambiguous to just spell out the month and use AM/PM
time, e.g.:

Tue 02 Aug 2011,  06:08pm

And (POSIX?) Linux "date" seems to be similarly unambiguous:

Tue Aug  2 18:09:06 CDT 2011

REXX (scripting language) has a lot of "date" (built-in function, aka
BIF) options, though I think only ANSI REXX (e.g. Regina) can convert
between 'em, and they all have different advantages / disadvantages:
