I am a beginner in python and need help with writing a regular expression for date and time to be fetched from a html document. In the following code I am walking through the html files in a folder called event and printing the headings with h1 tag using beautifulsoup. These html pages also contains different formats of date and time. I want to fetch and display this information as well. Different formats of date in these html documents are:
21 - 27 Nov 2012
1 Dec 2012
30 Nov - 2 Dec 2012
26 Nov 2012
Can someone help me out with fetching these formats from these html documents ?
Here is my code for walking through the files:
import re import os from bs4 import BeautifulSoup for subdir, dirs, files in os.walk("/home/himanshu/event/"): for fle in files: path = os.path.join(subdir, fle) soup = BeautifulSoup(open(path)) print (soup.h1.string) #Date and Time detection
