Converting Month to Num

Is there a simplier way of converting a Month that has a txt value, i.e.
$month = "April" and converting that to $month = 4 instead of writing a long
if statement.

I have a drop down menu that has the value of the month and I'm passing that
to another cgi page via post and I want to convert $q->param('month') over
to 4.
