Here's a puzzle that should be simple, but I'm so used to words that
numbers tend to baffle me.
I've got fields that look something like this:
1942. Oct. 1,3,5,7,8,9,10
I need to parse them to obtain something like this:
<sometag start="1942-10-07" end "1942-10-10"/>
The xml representation is incidental, the basic problem is how to test a
list of integers to see if they contain a range, and if they do, do
something different with them.
I'm sure this is the question of a rank tyro, but the denizens of this
list seem tolerant and gentle. Many thanks.
