in thread Look-behind regex to

I wonder if one would have to copy some Email::Find code and modify it with a negative zero-width look-behind for (ht|f)tp:// ?

It's even easier then that.

The docs for Email::Find have a section entitled "SUBCLASSING" that explains how you can make your own version with a different regex, or validation function. You can create a basic subclass that just defienes a new regex (with spaces before and after, and or enclosed in "<...>" -- whatever you want. "

[davido]: Exactly: SoPW. This isn't going to be solved easily in the CB.
[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 ;)
