Date and Time in Ruby

Hi all,

I got a requirement where i should send mail to user based on the time
they set to deliver the mail.

In my user table i have notification time which will be saved as
1,2,3,4,5… for options that they select.

Now I have the following options-

Daily 10Am
Daily 3pm
Weekly Monday 2PM.

So please help me on how to get these values date and time using ruby.

Have you tried using an Internet search engine? What results did you
get that failed to help you achieve your goal?

I just Googled “ruby date time parse string” and got hundreds of
results that looked like they would address your problem :-/

Hey,

I dont have much Idea but I tried this for my application

Police Search. http://localhost:3000/home#

t=Time.now
t.split(" ")[3]
you will get the ruby time format

My Dear Friend,

Here is the executed code for time
irb(main):001:0> t=Time.now
=> Fri Jan 20 14:47:46 +0530 2012
irb(main):002:0> t=t.to_s
=> “Fri Jan 20 14:47:46 +0530 2012”
irb(main):003:0> t.split(" “)
=> [“Fri”, “Jan”, “20”, “14:47:46”, “+0530”, “2012”]
irb(main):004:0> t.split(” ")[3]
=> “14:47:46”

As far as I can see, Time does not respond to “.split”

So you’ve added a “.to_s” that you didn’t mention before… :wink:

But wouldn’t it be easier to do :
Time.now.strftime("%T")
?

But either way, you’re not addressing the OP, as that was regarding
turning String into Time, not Time to String.

ok!!! cool dude

I got it
we can use like this
str=10 am
t=Time.parse(str)
t.split(" ")[3]

You really should try stuff like this before you post it:
$ rails c
Loading development environment (Rails 3.0.5)
ruby-1.8.7-p302 > str=10 am
SyntaxError: compile error
(irb):1: syntax error, unexpected tIDENTIFIER, expecting $end
from (irb):1
ruby-1.8.7-p302 >

=> Fri Jan 20 14:47:46 +0530 2012
But wouldn’t it be easier to do :
