I was converting simple string in django into a standard datetime object
and creating two separate list one of date and other of time.

I want to ask this :-

 date_object = datetime.strptime('November 9 2012 11:30PM', '%B %d %Y

which  gives me :-

datetime.datetime(2012, 11, 9, 23, 30) and this is correct.

What i want to know is if i convert it to

date_object = datetime.strptime(' Friday November 9 2012 11:30PM', '%u %B
%d %Y %I:%M%p' )

It is giving me ValueError saying u is unsupported directive !

How can i get weekday as week number ?

Thanks in advance !
