datetime is an array object that represents points in time in the familiar
This is an attempt to reproduce the functionality of Matlab’s

The underlying representation is that of a datenum (a
containing the number of days since the Matlab epoch), but encapsulating it in an
object provides several benefits: friendly human-readable display, type safety,
automatic type conversion, and time zone support. In addition to the underlying
datenum array, a
datetime inclues an optional
indicating what time zone the datetimes are in.
So, basically, a
datetime is an object wrapper around a datenum array,
plus time zone support.
