I need to extract the date from the file name.

QString fileName = "logs_2013_15_07.txt" ;

QDate fileDate = QDate::fromString(fileName," 'logs_'yyyy'_'MM'_'dd'.txt' ") ;
qDebug() << fileDate ;


following the example in the doc:

 QDateTime dateTime2 = QDateTime::fromString("M1d1y9800:01:02",
 // dateTime is 1 January 1998 00:01:02

but i get invalid date.
