Hello everybody,

I am a new user. I'm using DataTables to develop an open-source tool that is creating reports on chat messages of skype. I really like datatables, pretty powerful.
The thing I would love to have and that I don't know how to implement is having 1-2 search forms (like the ones used to search for keywords ) for timestamps/dates.
The file i'm working on is here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/5160930/test.zip (there is an html file and the datatables files. No viruses.)

As you can see from the file i have (in this page) 2 columns which could have dates in them with this format: mm-dd-YYYY hh:mm:ss
examples of dates from the file:

03-02-2013 16:04:07
05-02-2013 16:04:04
06-02-2013 16:04:07
17-02-2013 16:32:17
18-02-2013 12:29:38
22-02-2013 03:39:08

I would like, i.e., to search for only dates between 03-02-2013 and 06-02-2013.

My question is:
1) is there a plugin that would allow me to do that? Can you tell me how to add it to datatable?
2) In case the answer to 1 is no, Can you please help me writing a basic function to do that?
3) and in case the answer to 2 is also no (:P), can you please tell me where should i start reading the code to write a function like that?
I have some experience with javascript and jquery but the code here is a bit hard to understand for me.

Thank you very much for your reply and your help,

    For example...can you "help me" implement this function already written by allan in the code I have uploaded?
