Makes you look big *and* clever

To the anonymous Texan that thought it would be a good idea to point
out a Perl module in response to my date parsing class in Java:

I’m well aware of date parsing modules in other languages. In fact
I’ve used them for similar tasks. But the post wasn’t asking “How do I
parse dates in Perl?” It was giving some code that some people might
find useful.

Commenting with “man Date::Parse” doesn’t make you look clever; it
just makes you look like a twat and the kind of person people are
relucant to invite to parties. You may be a geek and you may know stuff,
but that doesn’t mean you have to try to look clever, because you will
invariably fail.

</rant>

Oh and Erich, I’ve got some more date formats I want to add support
for, so I’ll add german dates and post the updated code. 🙂
