Get or set a boolean value that controls how the parse_date method will interpret xx/xx/xxxx dates: either month/day/year or year/month/day.
If true, then the parse_date method will pass its arguments to Rose::DateTime::Utils parse_european_date function, which interprets such dates as dd/mm/yyyy.
If false, then the parse_date method will temporarily <B>forceB> non-European date parsing and then call Rose::DateTime::Utils parse_date function, which will interpret the date as mm/dd/yyyy.
This attribute defaults to the value returned by the Rose::DateTime::Util->european_dates class method called at the time the Rose::DateTime::Parser object is constructed.
If the BOOL argument is undefined (instead of false, but defined) then the attribute will return to its default value by calling the Rose::DateTime::Util->european_dates class method again. To unambiguously set the attribute to true or false, pass a defined value like 1 or 0.
