__pmParseCtime reverses the asctime(3) function. It accepts a string
specifying a time, and fills in the given tm structure.
string is either a fully specified date and time in the format DayMMM DD HH:MM:SS YYYY (e.g "Mon Mar 4 13:07:47 1996") or a partially
specified date and time like "1996", "Mar 1996", "Mar 4 1996", "Mar",
"13:07:47", "13:07", "Mar 4 13:07:47",.... For a partially specified
date and time, the order of the fields must be preserved and missing
fields are filled in from the current date and time.
The seconds component (SS) may be a floating point number, for
example the time "13:07:47.5". The 12 hour clock is also supported,
so "13:07" and "1:07 pm" are equivalent.
__pmParseCtime returns 0 if successful. It returns -1 and a
dynamically allocated error message string in errmsg, if the given
string does not parse. Be sure to free(3) the error message string.
The tm structure returned in rslt should only be used as an argument
to the __pmConvertTime function, as it contains encoded information
that will only be correctly interpreted by __pmConvertTime.
