in reply to A Perl Project Page

If all you want us to say that it is a good idea, I would like to say that, try to implement a small idea first that you might consider worth while. Even if you can find a resource to implement it, it would be nice too. Just so that you would know, what is actually involved and you can get a first hand report for it.

Meanwhile, look around. See what other people have implemented. Look at other open source communities and Perl projects in the same. Bring experience to the table. As I suggested in other node, start implementing as a single node. Do not think Perlmonks as ever ready community which is eager to do big work. Do not think that Perlmonks community is after XP. We all are here to learn as community members.

[TCLion]: Good Morning Monks, I am parsing logs and some date time formats are inconsistent. I am trying to make output all same format. What is the best way to convert a month(word) to month(number)?
[Corion]: TCLion: I'm not aware of a better way than manually building the hash, as all strptime incarnations I know have nasty edge cases
[davido]: And remember; time is hard. :) As soon as you think, I've got this, you'll discover that time is harder than that. :)
[1nickt]: TCLion are you parsing the dates with DateTime or another tool?
[1nickt]: I note DateTime::Format:: Flexible, announced immediately below this box in the CPAN feed
