  • metadata (metadata object) –

  • formatting (string, ('ISO', 'datetime', 'datetime64')) – Default: ‘ISO’. This parameter set the formatting of the date, and the time, it can be ISO 8601 string, datetime.datetime or a numpy.datetime64 object. In the later case, the time zone is not supported.

Return type

string, datetime.datetime or numpy.datetime64 object

Example

>>> s = hs.load("example1.msa")
>>> s.metadata

>>> s = get_date_time_from_metadata(s.metadata)

Parameters
  • dt (date and time information: it can be a ISO 8601 string,) – a datetime.datetime or a numpy.datetime64 object

  • metadata (metadata object to update) –

Return type

metadata object

Example

>>> s = hs.load("example1.msa")
>>> dt = '2016-12-12T12:12:12-05:00'
