Allow me to borrow some related thoughts from Larry wall...
Of course, in Perl culture, almost nothing is prohibited. My feeling is that the rest of the world already has plenty of perfectly good prohibitions, so why invent more? That applies not just to programming, but also to interpersonal relationships, by the way. I have upon more than one occasion been requested to eject someone from the Perl community, generally for being offensive in some fashion or other. So far I have consistently refused. I believe this is the right policy. At least, it's worked so far, on a practical level. Either the offensive person has left eventually of their own accord, or they've settled down and learned to deal with others more constructively. It's odd. People understand instinctively that the best way for computer programs to communicate with each other is for each of the them to be strict in what they emit, and liberal in what they accept. The odd thing is that people themselves are not willing to be strict in how they speak, and liberal in how they listen. You'd think that would also be obvious. Instead, we're taught to express ourselves.
(Emphasis mine.)

I am not as generous and forgiving as he is, but I certainly find his thinking on how to communicate rather illumining...

    [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
