in reply to Date conversion to epoch w/out mysql.pm

If you aren't averse to parsing the date yourself and converting it into numbers Time::Local will fix you right up... otherwise there are some Date modules out there that I believe can parse the date and then you can do conversions.

Pretty easy to parse that, however and turn Jan into 00 and PM into +12...

Update: Time::Local is a module, but I think it is in the Perl core.

    suaveant, yes Time::Local is indeed in the Perl core.
