You provide me the bookcases, I'll supply the books...

The comfy chair is a nice idea. But (to paraphrase the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers) books will get you through a time of no chairs better than a chair will get you through a time of no books. 8-)

    For me, it'd be nice to have it warm enough to sit on the comfy chair for long stretches of time. Beside warmth, light would also be hard to do without. And, as I'm an ol' Perl hand, glasses.

[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 ;)
