parse dates

P: n/a
Hi,

I have been using PHP the last while and in particular strtotime.
What I want to replicate is finding the second or fourth Monday of the
next month. In PHP with strtotime it is easy (strtotime("second
Monday", strtotime("next month"), but I can't find an easy way to do
it in Python. I have seen DateUtil, but it seems to be able to do
only the simpler parsing (could be wrong).

Any other ideas?

If parsing is not required, dateutil is just fine:

from datetime import datetime
from dateutil import relativedelta

# second monday
datetime.now() + relativedelta.relativedelta(day=1, weekday=relativedelta.MO(+2))

# next month
datetime.now() + relativedelta.relativedelta(months=+1)
