hi to all regex master out there, I know you have a work around with regards to my problem. hehe
That's assuming that the month is a 3-letter version: eg, Jan, Feb, Mar.
Updated version to match the changes to the question:
As has been mentioned, this won't actually validate the date, it'll just validate that the string matches the format of: 1 or 2 numbers, a dash, 3 letters, a dash, 4 numbers.
