According to the info-page for date, running just plain


is supposed to work like

  date '+%c'

An excerpt from the front page:

   `date' with no arguments prints the current time and date, in the
   format of the `%c' directive (described below).


  ole: ~$ date
  fre mar  9 18:11:39 CET 2001
  ole: ~$ date '+%c'
  fre 09 mar 2001 18:11:45 CET

I'm using the Danish locale (da_DK) and 'date (GNU sh-utils) 2.0'.
