in reply to Should Perl Gurus (Wall,Schwartz,Christiansen et al) receive mega XP based on who they are?

I might be a wee too picky, but, I don't think the poll question was asked/answered correctly. IMHO, NOBODY should get mega XPs for who they are. They should, yes get MEGA XPs, for what they've done... Then again, you are what you do? Or you do what you are?

I dunno, I just felt it was worth pointing this out.

[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.
