in reply to Converting to epoch time.

this (untested) should print the UTC date in the format you require:

sub get_date { use Time::gmtime; my $tm = gmtime; return sprintf "%4.4d-%2.2d-%2.2d %2.2d:%2.2d:%2.2d", $tm->year+1900, ($tm->mon)+1, $tm->mday, $tm->hour, $tm->min, $tm->sec; }
if you need the epoch time, for example to compute distances in time you can try (untested):
sub epoch { use Time::Local; my $time = shift(); my ($tmp_year,$tmp_month,$tmp_day,$tmp_hour,$tmp_min,$tmp_sec) = un +pack('a4xa2xa2xa2xa2xa2',$time); return timegm($tmp_sec,$tmp_min,$tmp_hour,$tmp_day,$tmp_month-1,$tmp +_year-1900); }
Hope this helps.
