C'est vraie, mais le 7-bit ascii seulment est bien. Peut etre:

"+OK Bonjour, POP3 est pre^t %s\r\n"

Oops, I'm sorry.

That I don't have a book with the algorithms for those kind of date

Pehaps mu_mktime() can be a thin wrapper, it can subtract the
gmtoff from the hour/minute (mod a 24 hour day), then call mktime().
After doing the subtraction, the date, and day of week may be wrong,
however I think that mktime() is supposed to recalculate them
if they are wrong. I'll try and check. Does this seem portable?
