See one possible approach to the challenge of making the parser accept requests for data for an entire year instead of for a date range.
- [Instructor] So remember the challenge…was to amend the parser so that the user…could specify a year rather than a date range…so they could say something like StockChartBot LNKD 2015.…so they could say something like StockChartBot LNKD 2015.…And I said you should probably start…by adding a unit test for this.…That's actually super simple.…We just need another case in fact.…We're going to copy this case here.…And we're going to reproduce basically…exactly what I just said.…
With unit testing it's often good…to be quite literal minded.…So yes, we're expecting an A, we're expecting an LNKD,…and the expected date range is…and the expected date range is…from the first of January 2015.…Because of that,…to the 31st of December.…And fairly obviously that is failing.…So now let's go to the parser…and see what we can do about that.…Well we can exploit the fact that this new style of query…is going to have three elements where previously though a four…so again, let's be super literal.…
And make ourselves a new branch on our match…
