Relative date comparison don't appear to be working in searches (eg "date LATER_THAN 'now - 2 days'")

Reported by Lynnwood and Michael

Added a unit test, and they work perfectly.

-- TWiki:Main/CrawfordCurrie - 19 Feb 2007

user was comparing dates taken from info.sate, which is a time in seconds.

So changing this to an enhancement; viz to add a function 'epochdate' that can wrap an integer number of seconds and turn it into an epoch date.


Decided to use automatic type conversion instead. When a date operator is used, a plain integer will automatically be converted to a date.
