- Here'a quick example of how I use the testbed:…As I mentioned before when I have a specific…task to accomplish, I'll start with a testbed like this one…and i'll do some prototyping to figure out…what approach I'm gonna take.…This is an example of a task that I needed to play with…in order to understand it well enough.…I used this testbed to develop the date string conversions…that I use in the RSS app.…One of the challenges with RSS is that…many feeds don't follow the standards very closely.…There is a standard for the date format…in the RSS feed and actually very few feeds…follow that standard.…
This comes up in many places,…but date formatting is a big one.…My app needs to know when items were posted…in a feed in order to sort them correctly,…but formats used for dates vary widely…between various feeds.…So here in Xcode I have a working copy of testbed-date…from chapter 1 of the exercise files.…And if we come down here to the bottom…you see...…We have these message support, we have the message function…and init TextView and then I have…
