in reply to Re^2: variable declaration question
in thread variable declaration question

Try:
print(my $foo = ('a', 'b', 'c'), "\n");
vs:
my @foo = ('a', 'b', 'c'); my $bar = @foo; print $bar, "\n";
I like using letters vs numbers to avoid confusion...

[james28909]: in need "yesterday" and so on, to be absolute like "1" or "31"
[stevieb]: ...and throw some of your existing code into the equation as well, just so readers know you've given a try at it ;)
[james28909]: ok
[stevieb]: davido thanks for the link ;) I was being the typical lazy
[davido]: date parsing is hard. The more examples you can provide of the input (within reason) and expected output, the better.
[stevieb]: agreed. That's why I said at least a half-dozen. If enough of the different formats are present, the date/time folk may not have to request more. If they do, then at least there was a decent base to start with
[stevieb]: I do date and time transformations in both Perl and Python, but not frequently enough to not have to search for the format params etc ;)
