rickrutgers has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

How to source a networkshare. The networkshare is on a nas-storage. The perl script is in a linux virtual machine. The networkshare is "//". The networkshare is password protected but this password is known and maybe used in the syntax. I've tried this with readdir but this will not work. Any input is welcome. Thanks Rick.

    Mount the remote share under linux or use something like (assuming SMB) the command line tool smbclient or Filesys::SmbClient, or whatever, depending on the protocol. Failing that contact your network/system admin.

[stevieb]: ask a question on SoPW, and include at least a half-dozen examples of the input, and at least one example of expected output
[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 ;)
