Sorry, I should have been clearer. I want to parse the date and create a
'date object' that is a part of larger object (I'm parsing a text file that
represents the larger object and the date is a part of it).
So my question should probably be: is there a better way to parse the date
and generate the 'date object' than the two step
w = strptime(d,'%Y-%m-%d')
datetime.date( w, w, w )
Since I'm new to many things in Python I'm trying to learn if there is a
"better" way of doing things.
