in reply to Perl for Non-Programmers...

You might like to look at danger's book Elements of Programming with Perl which already does a fine job in much the same area.

Update: Book title corrected. you'd think I'd have titles of the form 'XXX with Perl' burned into my brain by now :)

[1nickt]: Corion this looks good, from the pod: "there are 9000+ variations that are detected correctly in the test files (see t/data/* for most of them). If you can think of any that I do not cover, please let me know."
[TCLion]: some moron put the date like this : Mon Feb 20 09:31:30 2017
[Corion]: 1nickt: Yes, the module sounds promising indeed
[1nickt]: "putting the date in correct order" how?
[Corion]: TCLion: Whee ;)
[TCLion]: need to put like this : 2017-02-20 09:30:53
[1nickt]: That's why I asked if you are using DateTime. It has a large number of supporting modules (the author likes the term 'eco-system') so if you are already creating a DateTime obj from your dates, this module would read in the mnoron-formatted 1s seamlessly
[TCLion]: when I put the date together it looks like : 2017-Feb-24 (month is the problem)
[1nickt]: good luck, then.
[TCLion]: looking at DateTime documentation in monastery now
