in reply to Simulated Evolution

Not directly related to Perl, but you might want to take a look at the Tierra project. It's pretty much moribund nowadays, but a few years back (1994-1996) it was a good little example of digital evolution simulation and how one might go about it. The source code is fully available (all in C if I recall correctly). Probably a little dated now, but still worth a look, I think.

Have fun,

Tim

PS. I note that there are a few other resources of potential interest listed on that web site. I've not checked them out though...

[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 ;)
