  Description     : Fast date/time parser gem for Ruby

Date/time parser for Ruby with the following features:

 * Extensible with custom formats and tokens.
 * It's pretty fast. Up to 60% faster than Time/Date parse method.
 * Control the parser strictness.
 * Control behaviour of ambiguous date formats (US vs European e.g. mm/dd/yy, dd/mm/yy).
 * I18n support (for months), if I18n gem loaded.
 * Fewer WTFs than Time/Date parse method.

Extracted from the validates_timeliness gem, it has been rewritten cleaner and
much faster. It's most suitable for when you need to control the parsing
behaviour. It's faster than the Time/Date class parse methods, so it has
general appeal.


This is being packaged as a dependency of vagrant-azure.

This will be maintained within the pkg-azure team.
