 Description: module to extract probable dates from strings
- Date::Extract extracts dates from arbitrary strings.
+ Date::Extract extracts dates from arbitrary strings. It will take an
+ arbitrary block of text, search it for something that looks like a date
+ string, and build a DateTime object out of it.
+ .
+ By design it will produce few false positives. This means it will not catch
+ nearly everything that looks like a date string. So if you have the string
+ "do homework for class 2019" it won't return a DateTime object with the year
+ set to 2019.
