Wow. I didn't know you could do it so easily.
The file I tried it on (DarcsArguments.lhs from darcs-unstable) has
some timestamps that are formatted differently:
Thu Oct 31 13:29:44 EST 2002
It looks like Darcs doesn't use this format anymore (all the recent
patches use the more compact format). Here's a modified version of
the function that tries to handle both cases.
I'm not sure why, but the "time.strptime(...)" on my machine doesn't
seem to think 'EST' is a valid time zone. If I replace it with
'PST', 'PDT', 'UTC' or 'GMT', it works fine.
And I'm really sorry if this message doesn't thread up in the
archives. Does anyone know how I can get Pipermail/Mailman to thread
my messages properly? I'm also sorry about the footers -- I really
don't care whether you Yahoo or not. I need to find a new e-mail
INPUT_TIME_FORMATS = [
"%a %b %d %H:%M:%S %Z %Y",
"%a %b %d %H:%M:%S EST %Y", # hack hack
# Try all the time formats until one works
for parse_format in INPUT_TIME_FORMATS:
timestamp = time.strptime(date_string, parse_format)
return time.strftime("%x %X", timestamp)
# Unable to parse
#raise ("Couldn't parse '%s'" % date_string)
Do you Yahoo!?
Make Yahoo! your home page
