Convert string to timestamp


I have uploaded a large set of timeseries data into a 1-D array, with the timestamp as a string. Is there a way to convert this string to an actual timestamp value? I do not see that conversion operator in the documentation. Thanks.


The function scan_ts() can be used here.
Examples can be found in the user manual under section “Scan and Format Functions” in chapter “27. Timeseries Library Function Reference”.
