strptime(str='-4712-01-01T00:00:00+00:00', fmt='%FT%T%z', sg=ITALY) public

Create a new DateTime object by parsing from a String according to a specified format.

str is a String holding a date-time representation. fmt is the format that the date-time is in. See date/format.rb for details on supported formats.

The default str is ’-4712-01-01T00:00:00+00:00’, and the default fmt is ’%FT%T%z’. This gives midnight on Julian Day Number day 0.

sg specifies the Day of Calendar Reform.

An <a href="/ruby/ArgumentError">ArgumentError</a> will be raised if str cannot be parsed.
