No, Mirko, you've been in a time warp. Those things
disappeared in IDL 5.2. Not Y2K compatible, I guess. :-)

Check out the Label_Date function. And there are some
neat new things in IDL 5.4 (a TimeGen function, for
example). I think most everyone though is using the
date/time functions available on either the Johns
Hopkins Applied Physics Lab or NASA Astronomy ftp
