How can I turn off Units in DateDifference and similar functions?

Posted 10 years ago

Hello everyone

Is there any way to turn off units in DateDifference, so that the answer it returns is a number? Otherwise, the results of DateDifference cannot be used in statements such as

IntervalMemberQ[Interval[{360, 370}], myDateDiff]

without wrapping Interval in Quantity as

Quantity[Interval[{360, 370}],"days"]

It would a pain to have to go back and change a lot of my old scripts.

Regards,

Gregory

The legacy output without units is possible by SetSystemOptions. Please see DateDifference/Possible Issues
