elixir string to time

To convert a string to a time in Elixir, you can use the DateTime.from_iso8601/1 function. This function expects the string to be in ISO 8601 format, which is a standard format for representing dates and times. Here's an example:

datetime_string = "2023-11-29T10:30:00Z"
datetime = DateTime.from_iso8601(datetime_string)

In the example above, the datetime_string variable holds the string representation of the date and time. The DateTime.from_iso8601/1 function is then used to convert this string to a DateTime struct. The resulting datetime variable will contain the parsed date and time.

Please note that the DateTime.from_iso8601/1 function returns an {:ok, datetime} tuple if the conversion is successful. If the conversion fails, it returns an {:error, reason} tuple.

If you have a string in a different format, you may need to use a different function or parse the string manually using pattern matching and string manipulation functions.
