I would guess you can split the lines without help as that is very basic.

Once you have done that, look at Date::Calc to help you determine the appropriateness of any given entry. Your date field will need to be moderately massaged to work, but that is also very basic.

Just look at Date::Calc on CPAN and read it... all will become apparent...

[stevieb]: james28909: what's the problem/question?
[james28909]: it is not an absolute date like "27" or "31". sometimes it is like wednesday or friday
[james28909]: and i need to format those special instances into an absolute date instead of "yesterday"
[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.
