Text to dates

Does anyone have any standard functions they use to input and create
dates and times from a text field?

A bit like the Add Event on Basecamp's calendar...

Or perhaps seen examples elsewhere on the web of date parsing using
regular expressions?

Cheers for any guidance you can give!

Have you tried chronic?
