There are some helper functions, but whether they do what you need is another question. That depends on your specific problem.

See the documentation for httpd_util and calendar, for example.

  Is there a library in Erlang that provides conversion of Date and Time from string to integer and from integer to string?

   

  Sincerely,

  Victoria.
