NAME

       Catmandu::Fix::expand_date - expand a date field into year, month and date

NOTE

       This package is DEPRECATED and will be removed in the future.  Please use
       Catmandu::Fix::split_date.

       Reasons:

       ·   it writes directly in the root of the hash, which is a different behaviour compared to
           all the other fixes (sum, count, hash, array ..)

       ·   it adds the new keys in a different location, instead of "in place".

       ·   its behaviour cannot be changed without breaking its current use

SYNOPSIS

           # {date => "2001-09-11"}
           expand_date()
           # => {year => 2001, month => "9", day => "11", date => "2001-09-11"}

           # {datestamp => "2001:09"}
           expand_date(datestamp)
           # => {year => 2001, month => "9", datestamp => "2001:09"}

DESCRIPTION

       The date field is expanded if it contains a year, optionally followed by numeric month and
       day, each separated by "-" or ":".
