In Go I'm trying to use the
time.Parse() function from the
time package to convert a string timestamp into a
Time object. I know Go has an uncommon way of representing the time format your timestamps are in by providing it with an example of how their reference time (
Mon Jan 2 15:04:05 -0700 MST 2006) would be displayed in your format. I'm still having issues with errors however. Here is an example of one of my timestamps:
Tue Nov 27 09:09:29 UTC 2012
Here is what the call I'm making looks like:
t, err := time.Parse("Mon Jan 02 22:04:05 UTC 2006", "Tue Nov 27 09:09:29 UTC 2012")
So basically what I've done here is try and match the formatting for day name/month name/day number, the hour/minute/second format, the string literal "UTC" and the year format. Note that I've increased the hours field of the Go reference format by
22) to account for the fact that their timestamp is in a negative 7 timezone and all my timestamps are in a UTC timezone.
The error I get is:
parsing time "Tue Nov 27 09:09:29 UTC 2012" as "Mon Jan 02 22:04:05 UTC 2006": cannot parse ":09:29 UTC 2012" as "2"
What am I doing wrong here? Am I misinterpreting how to use
time.Parse() or is my use case not supported for some reason?
