month in single digit

hi all,
how do i get the month in single digit in ksh script ?? my command for date is :

/usr/bin/date +%Om/%Oe/%y | sed 's/ //g'

which returns "01/16/09" but i need the output to be "1/16/09" i.e the month without leading zero.

thanks in advance.

If you have GNU date:

date +%-m/%e/%y


date=$( date +%m/%e/%y )
echo "${date#0}"

(Though I can't imagine why anyone would want a date in such an illigocal and ambiguous format!)
