Awfully simple module to check a date for obsoletion

Project description

Really simple module to decide wether a a date string is considered “obsolete” or not.

Given a time-string like 2010-01-01 it will return True if this date should not be retained, or False if it should.

Other time strings can be used by specifying a different format string (see strftime and strptime for the detailed syntax)

Example Usage:

from retaindate import is_obsolete
from datetime import datetime, timedelta

for i in range(10*365, -1, -1):
    date = datetime.today() - timedelta(i)
    if not is_obsolete(date):
        print date

See the module docs (or the source) for more details
