Synopsis

                    ParseDateTime(datestring [, conversiontype])

Returns a valid ColdFusion date/time object from an English (US) locale datestring. An optional conversiontype may be specified. Valid entries for conversiontype are POP and Standard (the default). If POP is specified, datestring is converted to GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) using the English (US) locale. If Standard is specified, no conversion is performed. For conversion between different time zones, see DateConvert( ). For information on how ColdFusion MX handles two-digit years, see CreateDate( ). Examples:
