TEMPER (TEMPoral Enumerated Ranges) is a simple date and time syntax for representing points, lists, and ranges of timestamps. The syntax is designed to be trivial to parse, easy for humans to read, and friendly to basic lexical sorting algorithms. Examples: BCE1212 bce0551 1850~ 1952, 1958-1967, 1975 19990916_Z 19990916145903_z 20070401
