Meetup

Calculate the date of meetups.

Typically meetups happen on the same day of the week. In this exercise, you will take a description of a meetup date, and return the actual meetup date.

Examples of general descriptions are:

The descriptors you are expected to parse are: first, second, third, fourth, fifth, last, monteenth, tuesteenth, wednesteenth, thursteenth, friteenth, saturteenth, sunteenth

Note that "monteenth", "tuesteenth", etc are all made up words. There was a meetup whose members realized that there are exactly 7 numbered days in a month that end in '-teenth'. Therefore, one is guaranteed that each day of the week (Monday, Tuesday, ...) will have exactly one date that is named with '-teenth' in every month.

Given examples of a meetup dates, each containing a month, day, year, and descriptor calculate the date of the actual meetup. For example, if given "The first Monday of January 2017", the correct meetup date is 2017/1/2.

Resources

Remember to check out the Perl 6 documentation and resources pages for information, tips, and examples if you get stuck.

Running the tests

There is a test suite and module included with the exercise. The test suite (a file with the extension .t) will attempt to run routines from the module (a file with the extension .pm6). Add/modify routines in the module so that the tests will pass! You can view the test data by executing the command perl6 --doc *.t (* being the name of the test suite), and run the test suite for the exercise by executing the command prove . --exec=perl6 in the exercise directory. You can also add the -v flag e.g. prove . --exec=perl6 -v to display all tests, including any optional tests marked as 'TODO'.
