in reply to How can I convert epoch seconds to date format

not sure on what you are exactly trying to do, but for conversions from epoch to localtime you can use 'localtime'
perldoc -f localtime

localtime EXPR
               Converts a time as returned by the time function to a 9-element
               list with the time analyzed for the local time zone.  Typically
               used as follows:

                   #  0    1    2     3     4    5     6     7     8
                   ($sec,$min,$hour,$mday,$mon,$year,$wday,$yday,$isdst) =
Or you can use one of the many modules that does dateconversions, my current favorite is DateTime.

    This won't help the OP necessarily, but if you just want to display human-readable date and time without mucking with the data structure, remember that localtime() and gmtime(), when used in scalar context, return a string in the default format defined by ctime(3).

[marioroy]: The MCE::Hobo::Pool module will come later.
[Corion]: marioroy: Oh, that's always cool, having API-compatible modules. This makes testing and comparing things much easier
[marioroy]: IPC in MCE::Shared can handle 400k (sends) per second. That's seems a lot for being a pure-Perl module. After making the release, will come back and post a solution for a node by a fellow wanting faster logging.
[Corion]: While working on WWW::Mechanize:: Chrome, I had the suspicion that AnyEvent was doing something wrong, but I was able to swap it out for Mojolicious and the error persisted.
[Corion]: Of course, the error was in my own code ;)
[marioroy]: Corion, start and start_child in MCE::Hobo::Manager return a MCE::Hobo object, whereas P::FM returns the PID. I can have it return the PID though. I tried Hobo::Manager with several P::FM modules, just changed P::FM to MCE::Hobo::Manager and it works.
