I would like to globally set the Linux date format to ISO, which looks roughly like this:
YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS 2009-03-16 15:20:00
With varying levels of detail, such as omitting time, seconds, etc.
I know that for some applications, you can configure this manually, but I'd like it to be automatically set for every program.
I'm specifically using Ubuntu Intrepid, but a general solution that would work across all distributions would be best.
