function s = date2string(varargin)
 
% Returns date as a string.
%
% INPUTS 
%  o varargin{1}     + dates object with one element, if nargin==1.
%                    + 1*2 vector of integers (first element is the year, second element is the subperiod), if nargin==2.
%  o varargin{2}     integer scalar equal to 1, 4, 12 or 52 (frequency).
%
% OUTPUTS 
%  o s               string.
