A binding to strptime with extra features - see below.
The class of values from which time may be parsed
Given a format string in the format of strptime (see http://linux.die.net/man/3/strptime) and a data string, parse a date+time value from the data string and also return the remainder of the data string. We also support a %OS format specifier for fractional seconds, because we are using the strptime from r-project.org. We also support %^[+-][N]s for multiples of seconds since epoch, for example %^-3s is milliseconds since epoch (N can only be 1 digit)
