strptime() goes from date formats to seconds.

For going the other way, see ?DateTimeClasses  for a lot of information on dates and times, and (probably) ?as.POSIXct for changing something in seconds (as the Examples say, 'a large integer') into a date-time class which you should be able to convert to other things more easily.
