A trivial wrapper, and nothing that's not in toolbox doc.

fetch function for historic data returns date in a form which is unknown. It is not in the same form as <now>. Try this fetch function
d = fetch(C,'INFOSYSTC.NS','Close',datestr(n),datestr(n-num_days),'d');

Is it something typical to Indian Stock Market?
