just another quick question...if i wanted to put a string into a date 
format such as the following:


res = []
array = ["2/14/2005",83,35,23]
res << array.grep(/2/\14/\2005/)

 # so now res has "2/14/2005" in it...how would i turn that into a --

specdate = Date.new(2, 24, 2005)

so i need 2/14/2005 turned into a date object, preferably not having to 
use the format of Date.new(year,day,month) ...id prefer to have it in 
the format of month,day,year if possible :)

much thanks!
