( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Just because I like to roll my own:
use strict; use warnings; while (<DATA>) { chomp; print "$_ : ", validate($_), "\n"; } BEGIN { my @mdays = (0,31,28,31,30,31,30,31,31,30,31,30,31); sub validate { no warnings; my ($year, $month, $day) = $_[0] =~ m/^(\d{4})(\d{2})(\d{2})$/ +; my $nyear = (localtime())[5] + 1900; ##### Year range is 10 years on either side of current year ##### Also exits if m// returned nothing return if $year < $nyear - 10 || $year > $nyear + 10; return if $month < 1 || $month > 12; ##### Leap year conditions if ($month == 2) { if ($year % 4 != 0) { $mdays[2] = 28; } elsif ($year % 400 == 0) { $mdays[2] = 29; } elsif ($year % 100 == 0) { $mdays[2] = 28; } else { $mdays[2] = 29; } } return if $day < 1 || $day > $mdays[$month]; return 1; } } __DATA__ 1234567 19991203 20051303 20051232 20040229 20050229 20401223

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
