THIS FORK IS NO LONGER MAINTAINED.
The much more robust aniso8601 is recommended instead.
A simple package to deal with ISO 8601 date time formats.
ISO 8601 defines a neutral, unambiguous date string format, which also has the property of sorting naturally.
e.g. YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SSZ or 2007-01-25T12:00:00Z
Currently this covers only the most common date formats encountered, not all of ISO 8601 is handled.
Currently the following formats are handled:
I'll add more as I encounter them in my day to day life. Patches with new formats and tests will be gratefully accepted of course :)
