Question:
I want to convert strings to dates, but StrToDate doesn't do
what I want. I want to convert "December 6, 1969" to a 
TDateTime. What should I do?


Answer:
StrToDate only converts numbers, so if you have month names in
your string, you'll have to use VarToDateTime instead. Here are
some examples:

  var
    D1, D2, D3 : TDateTime;
  begin
    D1 := VarToDateTime('December 6, 1969');
    D2 := VarToDateTime('6-Apr-1998');
    D3 := VarToDateTime('1998-Apr-6');
    ShowMessage(DateToStr(D1)+' '+DateToStr(D2)+' '+
                DateToStr(D3));
  end;
