>>> import time
>>> print time.strptime.__doc__
strptime(string, format) -> tuple
Parse a string to a time tuple according to a format specification.
See the library reference manual for formatting codes (same as strftime()).
>>>
>>>
>>> time.strptime("19990822", "%Y%m%d")
(1999, 8, 22, 0, 0, 0, 6, 1, 0)
>>> time.mktime(time.strptime("19990822", "%Y%m%d"))
935294400.0
