I have a large file with dates in the format '2001-11-04'. As I couldn't find
a method to change to date, I'm doing:
date := self dateFrom: (dateString subStrings: '-').
"anArray should be like #('2005' '09' '06')"
^Date year: anArray first asInteger month: anArray second asInteger day:
anArray third asInteger
This works, but profiling shows half the work in loading the file is in
Is there a more efficient way? Is there a standard method I've missed?
Also, I tried to import the .cs of a date parser by Goran here;
When I unpack the file, then click 'install' in the file list, I get a
syntax error. How should I be loading this file?
