Not sure if you're asking "what does it do?" or "what doesn't it do?".

To answer both though: it doesn't slice, and it doesn't dice. It does
however, once pointed at a table of data stored in an SQL database,
generate a nice HTML table of data, plus a form that allows you to search
and sort that data.

I have now put up a demonstration of "inc_dt" in action:

(In case you're interested, the data table it is searching is the data
used to build the <link> elements, navigation bar and site map on my site.)

The question was "what does it do".
I thought I can shorten the sentence "What does it do?" into "What
does't do?". The same as "It's do...".

It is a valuable approach to work that can easily be endured. Whenever one
piece of work becomes a bore or reaches a jam, you can divert your
attention elsewhere while still making valuable progress.

Having said that, the ideal situation involves the investment of /all/
resources to complete one task at the time (caching comes to mind, equiv.
to short-term memory). While computers can do it, the human psychology
cannot. So, multi-tasking is probably the best path to productive living
that's also enjoyable.

Best of luck!

Nope. You cannot just contract any word that takes your fancy. Almost all
English contractions take the form of:

1. a negation (something with "n't" added to the end); or

2. a combination of a pronoun (I/you/he/she/it/we/they/etc)
with an auxilary verb (have/shall/will/am/would/should/etc).

Almost any other contraction in written English is incorrect.

Notable exceptions:

'til until
'cause because

And, rather poetic, but rarely used:

'tis it is
'twas it was
'neath beneath
e'en even
e'er/ne'er ever/never

In spoken English, there are a few more.

Sorry, no. 'Its' doesn't have an apostrophe when used as a pronoun,

Correct, but not for the reason you just described. Edwin is referring
