Extract Pubdate


Perhaps I did not search correctly but I am looking for a function in Calibre that extracts the publication date from the book contents itself, like Extract ISBN does for ISBN.

Most books contain, within the first few pages, the copyright symbol followed by a four digit year of first publication. It would be nice if this year could be extracted and used to set the pubdate metadata field.

Thanks in advance.
