How do I convert a string to a date object in python?

The string would be: "24052010" (corresponding to the format: "%d%m%Y")

I don't want a datetime.datetime object, but rather a datetime.date.

You can use strptime in the datetime package of Python:

>>> datetime.datetime.strptime('24052010', "%d%m%Y").date()

datetime.date(2010, 5, 24)
