Hi,

I've just spent a short while creating a couple of methods that take a 
string representing a date (in the format dd-mmm-yyyy, e.g. 10-Aug-2005) 
and return an actual date object.

I did do some research before writing it but couldn't find anything 
relevant that already did this.

Now that I've done it I wonder if someone could let me know whether 
there is in fact something that already does this and I've just missed it?

Cheers,

Chris
