in thread problem with 'strftime' on unix systems

But the epoch isn't effected by timezone. It's the number of seconds since 00:00 on 1st Jan 1970 GMT. I can't see how you'll ever get different answers from:

print strftime '%s', localtime;


print time;

Am I missing something?

    No I don't think you are missing something, it was just the only semi-plausible reason that I could think of that someone might think they want to do that.
