strptime

Importance_2
Ruby on Rails latest stable (v5.2.3) - 0 notes - Class: ActiveSupport::TimeZone
strptime(str, format, now = now()) public

Parses str according to format and returns an ActiveSupport::TimeWithZone.

Assumes that str is a time in the time zone self, unless format includes an explicit time zone. (This is the same behavior as parse.) In either case, the returned TimeWithZone has the timezone of self.

Time.zone = 'Hawaii'                   # => "Hawaii"
Time.zone.strptime('1999-12-31 14:00:00', '%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S') # => Fri, 31 Dec 1999 14:00:00 HST -10:00

If upper components are missing from the string, they are supplied from TimeZone#now:

Time.zone.now                              # => Fri, 31 Dec 1999 14:00:00 HST -10:00
Time.zone.strptime('22:30:00', '%H:%M:%S') # => Fri, 31 Dec 1999 22:30:00 HST -10:00

However, if the date component is not provided, but any other upper components are supplied, then the day of the month defaults to 1:

Time.zone.strptime('Mar 2000', '%b %Y') # => Wed, 01 Mar 2000 00:00:00 HST -10:00
