Here's another exercise to consider.
This is a date entry problem where the user can enter a date in
various forms, but the return will be in a consistent format.
For example, a user might enter a date in the form of:
August 5, 2009
Aug 05 2009
Aug 5, 9
8 05 2009
Or any combination thereof.
However, the resultant date will be standardized to: Aug 5, 2009.
Extra points for solving this for Euro as well as US date formats
(i.e., 5 Aug, 2009 vs Aug 5, 2009). And, extra extra points for
accommodating month brevity, such as "A" for August and "Mar" for
March and so on.
