date format?

Hi,

how do I figure out, what internal date format is used by
PostgreSQL (7.1.3)? Or how do I set it to the desired format
after I've already created the table?
I don't know what's standing in my db?
08.04.2003 | 04.08.2003??
April | August

thanks

select * from pg_settings;
and find the DateStyle setting. Mine is 'ISO with US (NonEuropean)
conventions' (mm/dd/yyyy).
European is dd/mm/yyy
