I'm looking for a C++ library that has equivalent functionality to Python's
dateutil. Specifically, I want:
dateutil.parser.parse: Given a string that represents a date, convert it to some kind of date object from which I can get seconds since the epoch.
dateutil can handle diverse strings like "January 1st, 2017", " "2017-01-01 18:00" and "Jan 1 17 7am" - if there's a C++ library that can automatically handle a variety of strings as well, that would be ideal.
dateutil.rrule - Generate a list of dates and times from a rule. For instance, in Python I can get 7am every Saturday and Sunday between two dates by writing:
dateutil.rrule.rrule( dateutil.rrule.DAILY, byweekday=(dateutil.rrule.SA, dateutil.rrule.SU), dtstart=datetime.datetime.combine(start_date_day, datetime.time(7, 00)), until=datetime.datetime.combine(end_date_day, datetime.time(23, 59)))
I'm looking for the same ability to generate dates/times between dates with rules like the one above.
