To convert a string to date I need to omit meaningless parts. I found
this format working well (Twitter dump format):

SELECT to_timestamp(
  'Tue Sep 24 08:56:18 +0000 2013',
  'xxx Mon DD HH24:MI:SS xxxxx YYYY'
-- 2013-09-24 08:56:18-07

In place of "xxx" I can use any non-reserved symbols, e.g.:

'aaa Mon DD HH24:MI:SS bbbbb YYYY'

Number of symbols can vary in some limits, e.g. 'aa' is still working.

Is it hack or normal behaviour of parser? I did not find any mention of
wildcards or placeholders in documentation:


Best regards,

P.S. I use PostgreSQL 9.4.
