in reply to Free Nodelet Hack: Set Timestamp for Newest Nodes

I just noticed one can set his own Format for date-times in User Settings which could cause the regex to fail because the setting also has an effect on the displayed node creation time.

When not set, the default setting for the date format on PM currently is "%b %d, %Y at %H:%M %Z" (i.e. 'Nov 13, 2005 at 01:23 CET').
Using "%b %d, %Y at %H:%M:%S %Z" to also show the seconds would still work.

The javascript expects the variable 'timestr' to be in the format of "%b %d, %Y %H:%M:%S" or "%b %d, %Y %H:%M" (i.e. 'Nov 13, 2005 01:23') to convert the time string into unix time (aka epoch seconds).

[1nickt]: Yaerox probably best to whip up an SSCCE demonstrating the failure in what you have now and post to SoPW as a question.
[Corion]: Yaerox: That's a somewhat hard problem. Encode solves the conversion part, but for guessing what encoding a file is in, that's the hard part
[Corion]: Yaerox: There is Encode::Guess, but that needs a limited set of inputs, and it also cannot handle multiple single-byte encodings
[Corion]: If you have a BOM, that's a really easy way to recognize UTF-8. Otherwise, you can try to decode a file from UTF-8, and if that works OK and doesn't crash, most likely the file was valid UTF-8
