(C) Frank Bennett 1996, 1997

This package provides facilities for parsing a string
of dates in a loosely structured format, returning the
result in an orderly fashion in count register.  The
parser, meant to be called by other packages, is extensible,
and full documentation is provided.  A demonstration
file is included in the distribution which shows off
its major features.

This package also requires the overword package,
also on CTAN.

dates – Macros for pars­ing date strings

This pack­age pro­vides a macro, \dateread, that can be used to parse date strings, ei­ther in­di­vid­u­ally or re­cur­sively. The macro ex­pects a hu­man-read­able syn­tax, which it con­verts into an in­te­ger (a “long date”) that can be more eas­ily used for some types of com­pu­ta­tion. A set of com­pan­ion macros and to­ken reg­is­ters is also pro­vided for con­vert­ing long dates into hu­man-read­able form.
