I am trying to read activity data created by Garmin. It outputs dates like this:
"Thu, 25 Aug 2016 6:34 PM"
The problem that has stumped me is this:
> strftime("Thu, 25 Aug 2016 6:34 PM",format="%a, %d %b %Y %I:%M %p")
Error in as.POSIXlt.character(x, tz = tz) :
character string is not in a standard unambiguous format
I _thought_ I had this running OK but that error is catching me now. I think I've read ?strftime and written that format string correctly to match the input but I'm stumped now.
Can someone advise me? Many thanks in advance,
