strptime(str='-4712-01-01', fmt='%F', sg=ITALY) public

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

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

The default str is ’-4712-01-01’, and the default fmt is ’%F’, which means Year-Month-Day_of_Month. This gives Julian Day Number day 0.

sg specifies the Day of Calendar Reform.

An ArgumentError will be raised if str cannot be parsed.
