The original datestr and datenum are powerful, but slow.

mdatestr, mdatenum only convert date between string with format 'yyyy-mm-dd' and series value (with Excel type).

They cost 20% time of datestr and datenum(with specific format).

% usage
% mdatenum('2010-10-30') % ans = 734421
% mdatestr(73421) % ans = '2010-10-30'
