dates.dtx (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. Current version: 1.3 Feb 17 1997 Frank Bennett firstname.lastname@example.org

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.
