Had seen the fisrt of these. The second link or actually the erlmail
tagged article of the blog mentions there problems he had with parsing
dates and provides links to tar balls which presumably contains the date
parser. I'll have to be sure to take a closer look. You also prompted me
to take another look around for leex. This led to this email
http://www.erlang.org/ml-archive/erlang-questions/199903/msg00000.html

and led me to download the examples file. This file contains leex.erl
which was what I was missing. I've spent all of today on this so far, I
can see I've still got a lot to learn which will have to wait for
tomorrow now.

Jeff.
