# Palindrome dates

``````var palindates = Enumerator({ |f|
var d = Date.strptime("2020-02-02", "%Y-%m-%d")
loop {
f(d) if d.strftime("%Y%m%d").is_palindrome
}
})

palindates.first(15).each { .strftime("%Y-%m-%d").say }
``````

#### Output:

``````2020-02-02
2021-12-02
2030-03-02
2040-04-02
2050-05-02
2060-06-02
2070-07-02
2080-08-02
2090-09-02
2101-10-12
2110-01-12
2111-11-12
2120-02-12
2121-12-12

Faster solution:

``````define DateCalc = frequire('Date::Calc')

var palindates = gather {
for y in (2020 .. 9999) {
var (m, d) = Str(y).flip.last(4).split(2)...
take([y,m,d].join('-')) if DateCalc.check_date(y, m, d)
}
}

say "Count of palindromic dates [2020..9999]: #{palindates.len}"

for a,b in ([
["Last 15:",  palindates.tail(15)]
]) {
say ("\n#{a}\n", b.slices(5).map { .join("   ") }.join("\n"))
}
``````

#### Output:

``````Count of palindromic dates [2020..9999]: 285
