Macros for parsing date strings

This package provides a macro, \dateread, that can be used to parse date strings, either individually or recursively. The macro expects a human-readable syntax, which it converts into an integer (a “long date”) that can be more easily used for some types of computation. A set of companion macros and token registers is also provided for converting long dates into human-readable form.
