Subject: Parse error for french date with 'mars' (march) as month $VERSION = "2.27", #! /usr/bin/perl use strict ; use Date::Language ; my $dateP = Date::Language->new('French'); my $timestamp = $dateP->str2time('4 mars 2005') ; my ($ss,$mm,$hh,$day,$month,$year,$zone) = localtime $timestamp; my %elem = (); $month++; $year +=1900; $elem{'Day'} = $day ; $elem{'Month'} = $month; $elem{'Year'} = $year; print " --> $day/$month/$year\n" ; Threre is a bug while parsing a date in french containing 'mars' As far as I understand, it's because 'mar' (= mardi = tuesday) is suppressed in the substitution in $VERSION = "2.27", line 62 and 90 : 62: my $daypat = join("|", map { lc $_ } reverse sort keys %$day_ref); 89: $dtstr =~ s#($daypat)\s*(den\s)?# #o; eg. $dtstr = '4 mars 2005' --> $dtstr = '4 s 2005' ; I temporaly solve that by setting: 89: $dtstr =~ s#($daypat)\b\s*(den\s)?# #o; but it's probably not the right solution....
