in reply to Coolest way to decode YYYYMMDD?

use DateTime; use List::MoreUtils qw(mesh); my $string = "19830501"; my $date = DateTime->new( mesh @{['year', 'month', 'day']}, @{[unpack "A4A2A2", $string]} );
Is that "cool" enough? :)

    You can disable a prototype rather than bending over backwards to comply to it.

    use DateTime qw( ); use List::MoreUtils qw( mesh ); my $string = "19830501"; my $date = DateTime->new(&mesh( [qw( year month day )] => [ unpack "A4A2A2", $string ] ));
