I need a semantic text feature added to a custom built task reminder app ( [url removed, login to view] )
The feature added will need to re-create the functionality found on [url removed, login to view] (please visit site before bidding) where the user enters a string such as "Dinner with Tom tonight at 6" and the app extracts event (dinner), time "6pm" and Date "current day" from the string.
I would like this functionality to be added to our Task app.
This is a fully functioning reminder app and already has code that creates and executes reminders. All you would have to do is create the script which takes a text string and extracts the "event", "date" and "time" and enters this into our existing database.
For example - if the user enters into the text box " dinner with Tom tomorrow night at 7pm" your script would extract:
Description/Event - Dinner with Tom
Date - Tomorrow Date e.g 7/4/2009
Time - 7pm
