Subject: Date::Parse is able to parse ludicrous dates

Looking at the documentation I have no idea why this program works, or what the value is that it prints out. A parser should do syntax checking and not make undocumented assumptions. #!/usr/bin/perl use Date::Parse; $time = str2time('1'); print "$time\n";

Date::parse is all about making assumptions to guess the date from the string. If you want to parse dates in a particular format then I would suggest looking at DateTime::Format modules.
