The Art of Concatenation

For example, it is not out of the ordinary to import a table with a date such as “111197.” Assuming that the string has already been parsed out into month, day, and year components, how do you concatenate the string into a date with slashes added? Because it is all text, you can use the plus (+) operator (which works in almost any programming language) to concatenate like this:


“11” + “/” + “11” + “/” + “97”
