Time::Epoch - Convert between Perl epoch and other epochs SYNOPSIS
#!/usr/bin/perl -wl use Time::Epoch; my $perlsec = 966770660; # Sun Aug 20 07:24:21 2000 -0400 on Mac OS my $epochsec = perl2epoch($perlsec, 'macos', '-0400'); my $perlsec2 = epoch2perl($epochsec, 'macos', '-0400'); print $perlsec; print $perlsec2; print $epochsec; # correct time on Unix: print scalar localtime $perlsec; # correct time on Mac OS (-0400): print scalar localtime $epochsec; DESCRIPTION
Exports two functions, "perl2epoch" and "epoch2perl". Currently only goes between Perl (Unix) epoch and Mac OS epoch. This is in preparation for an eventual move of Perl to its own universal epoch, so we can get the system epoch of any platform that differs from Perl's. Epochs o macos Takes additional optional parameter of time zone differential. If time zone differential not supplied, we guess by getting the different between "localtime" and "gmtime" with <Time::Local::timelocal>. BUGS
o Hm. With the above test, "scalar localtime $perlsec" under my Linux box and "scalar localtime $epochsec" under my Mac OS box are off by one second from each other. Maybe a leap second thing? Odd. AUTHOR

DateTime::Format::Epoch::MacOS - Convert DateTimes to/from Mac OS epoch seconds SYNOPSIS
use DateTime::Format::Epoch::MacOS; my $dt = DateTime::Format::Epoch::MacOS->parse_datetime( 1051488000 ); DateTime::Format::Epoch::MacOS->format_datetime($dt); # 1051488000 my $formatter = DateTime::Format::Epoch::MacOS->new(); my $dt2 = $formatter->parse_datetime( 1051488000 ); $formatter->format_datetime($dt2); # 1051488000 DESCRIPTION
This module can convert a DateTime object (or any object that can be converted to a DateTime object) to the number of seconds since the Mac OS epoch. Note that the Mac OS epoch is defined in the local time zone. This means that these two pieces of code will print the same number of seconds, even though they represent two datetimes 6 hours apart: $dt = DateTime->new( year => 2003, month => 5, day => 2, time_zone => 'Europe/Amsterdam' ); print $formatter->format_datetime($dt); $dt = DateTime->new( year => 2003, month => 5, day => 2, time_zone => 'America/Chicago' ); print $formatter->format_datetime($dt); Mac OS X is a Unix system, and uses the Unix epoch (1970-01-01T00:00:00). Use DateTime::Format::Epoch::Unix instead. METHODS
Most of the methods are the same as those in DateTime::Format::Epoch. The only difference is the constructor. o new() Constructor of the formatter/parser object. It has no parameters. SUPPORT
Support for this module is provided via the email list. See for more details. AUTHOR
