Date conversion to epoch w/out mysql.pmby Anonymous Monk
|on Jan 05, 2006 at 16:33 UTC||Need Help??|
Anonymous Monk has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I found a util but it seems to require a mysql.pm. I am pulling a row from a MSSQL server which uses this format
Jan 5 2005 11:43AM
Jan 11 2005 11:14AM
it doesn't use a zero in front of a single digit date
and I need to convert that into epoch, so I can compare it with current time, ie determine how many seconds old that timestamp is.
is there a way to do it without special pm's ?
