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:

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 (first, second, teenth, etc), calculate the date of the actual meetup. For example, if given "First Monday of January 2017", the correct meetup date is 2017/1/2


For installation and learning resources, refer to the exercism Racket page.

You can run the provided tests through DrRacket, or via the command line.

To run the test through DrRacket, simply open the test file and click the 'Run' button in the upper right.

To run the test from the command line, simply run the test from the exercise directory. For example, if the test suite is called hello-world-test.rkt, you can run the following command:

1
raco test hello-world-test.rkt

which will display the following:

1
2
3
4
raco test: (submod "hello-world-test.rkt" test)
2 success(es) 0 failure(s) 0 error(s) 2 test(s) run
