I remember that, once, Matz suggested a new literal notation for date/time, but he later withdrew it. It seems like introducing new syntax at this point is less realistic. But I believe that many people have wanted a simple way to create a date/time object.
Kernel#Time, in much of the same way as
Kernel.#Complex and others. It should take a string as the first required argument and some optional keyword arguments.
Time("2021-11-13T21:21:18.027294 +0900") # => 2021-11-13 21:21:18.027294 +0900 Time("2021-11-13 21:21:18.027294 +0900") # => 2021-11-13 21:21:18.027294 +0900 Time("foo", exception: false) # => nil
I leave out the specifics. There should be room for debate.
I wish the features nobu implemented in https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/18033 for
Time.new can be carried over to
