The Subsitute flag ($$) is the only flag that must be used in pairs. When the flag is turned on, it causes either a date or a time to be output. The output is determined by the word you associate with the flag pair; for example, $$Date. See the output in the following example. When the Substitute flag is turned on, any dollar sign character ($), even if it is not paired, must be preceded by an Accept flag if it is to be taken as normal text by DSR.
