in reply to Discipline

Apprenticeships involve ritual. Ritual is a discipline used to focus the student's attention. Many come to believe that the surface rituals of discipline are essential to the art. (Think "cargo cult".)

A monk who has achieved mastery of his art -- an Artisan -- can distinguish between the essential disciplines of their art and the rituals the art is wrapped in.

And besides, who is to say that the sleeping monk wasn't dreaming of doing one-handed pushups while being wacked on the head with by his Zen master?

[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 ;)
