feature request #7429
Improve parsing and formatting for VerbatimTimePeriod
In #6752 only very basic parsing and formatting functionality has been implemented for verbatimDate. Parsing supports "realdate ["verbatimYear"]"
For parsing we may want to support further formats like
"verbatimDate" [realdate] verbatimDate publ. realdate
- verbatimDate [realdate] or the other way round, but this is very critical as it is unclear which data is the real date and which is the verbatim date
same as all above, but with other quotations marks such as ' or English quotation marks
Also we need parsing of verbatim date in NonViralName parser (maybe we should merge these 2 somehow). But be careful to distinguish from original name parsing (a possible original name should not be recognized as a verbatim date).
- decision which format should be the default format => for now we take realdate ["verbatimDate"]
- Allow defining formats => this is a general issue for all format and will not be solved here
