Yes, exactly -- I made my life easier : I required dates to be
"ISO-8601-ish" as you put it.
The format is actually "CCYY@MM@DD@" where at least the final
"delimiter/symbol" is optional -- This is done to allow the standard
CJK date format to also be "ISO-8601-ish" , i.e., "2010å¹´02æœˆ19æ—¥" which
ends with "æ—¥" ("day"). If I remember correctly, Korean also uses a
format similar to this.
We get research data from collaborators from many parts of the world :
Normalizing dates to one format relieves at least one headache.
