string->time TIME #!optional FORMATprocedure

Converts a string of the form represented by the FORMAT string into the broken down time represented in a 10 element vector. The default time form understands something like "Tue May 21 13:46:22 1991".

The FORMAT string follows the rules for the C library procedure strptime. The default FORMAT string is "%a %b %e %H:%M:%S %Z %Y".
