Subject: Return original date strings

Hi, First of all, thanks for this useful module. I need to replace all date strings in a text to a standardized ISO YYYY-MM-DD. Unfortunately, Date::Extract returns DateTime objects and not the original strings. Hopefully an option can be added for this? Regards, Steven

I don't understand - can't you just stringify the date object, which will by default give you the ISO8601 formatted string?

I want to replace the *original* strings (which can be of various formats: "13 Nov 1986", "tomorrow", what have you) *into* ISO8601 strings. BTW, I published an alt implementation on CPAN[1]. Please tell me if it's something you can consider for Date::Extract so I can pull the alt implementation. [1] https://metacpan.org/release/Alt-Date-Extract-SHARYANTO Regards, Steven

For a concrete example, yesterday I converted the list of Ubuntu releases from the table at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Ubuntu_releases into: https://github.com/sharyanto/gudangdata/blob/master/table/ubuntu_release/data.csv Regards, Steven

Ah, I see, yes that would be useful, and I've wanted to do the same thing myself. Show quoted text

Sure. I'd add an option `format => "verbatim"` with a default of "DateTime". (Your "returns_orig" is a little bit clumsy). If you're feeling particularly generous, `format => "epoch"` would be another obvious addition. :) Thanks! Shawn PS Thank you for helping out, Karen. :)

Hi Shawn, Um, so who's going to do the implementation? (I don't mind doing it BTW) ;) Couldn't find a link to github repo and couldn't find the repo in your github account also. Regards, Steven

Hi Steven, You now have comaint on Date::Extract. :) I believe the most canonical repo is https://github.com/bestpractical/date-extract. Feel free to fork it. But please do, of course, confirm that that repo has the latest on CPAN. You're welcome to list your fork as the canonical repo in the dist metadata. Thanks, Shawn
