Using ParseDate in for loop


#1

Hi,

I’m trying to use ParseDate within a for loop but I get this error:

can’t dup NilClass

Any suggestions for making this work?

Thanks,

Jason,

That’s not nearly enough info for anyone to help with your problem.
Parsedate, of course, works just the same whether it’s in a for loop
or not. Try posting some actual code.

for res in @response
date1 = Date.today
date2 = ParseDate.parsedate(date_from_string)

if  (date1 - date2 <= 365)
    count1 += 1
end

end

The thing that’s likely to be causing your error is that
date_from_string is nil.

(There are also several other problems with your code, but I’ll let
you cross those bridges as you come to them.)
