Description
Another date regex. From year 1600-9999, days in month and leap year checks. Formats include MM-dd-YYYY, dd-MM-yyyy, yyyy-MM-dd, MMM dd,yyyy or dd MMM yyyy. Years are always four digits, months can be one or two digits, three letter abbreivation or full name. Named months (non-digit) can have days with a suffix 1st, 2nd, etc. Numeric months must have a separtate between itself and the other date parts. For Demo only: This was just a mental exercise don't use this for actual validation. Used .Net regex engines advanced features for easier constuction. Use this website (or .net engine) to test.
