Please help me to understand the binary representation of datetime.I have a program which stores time as the following:
binary data --> human readable datetime hh:mm:ss c16f b90e d17f e340 --> 01.05.09 12:47:35 5384 d5dd d27f e340 --> 01.05.09 14:09:03 1d0a 3dde d27f e340 --> 01.05.09 18:48:01 1bd8 2a11 d97f e340 --> 01.05.09 18:48:05 1b64 9211 d97f e340 --> 01.05.09 18:48:05 78d2 1182 e07f e340 --> 02.05.09 00:22:51 1cac 2682 e07f e340 --> 02.05.09 00:22:52 1cac 2682 e07f e340 --> 02.05.09 00:22:52 51d9 6182 e07f e340 --> 02.05.09 00:22:55 b74a 8982 e07f e340 --> 02.05.09 00:22:56
I'd like to be able to convert bin to txt and vice versa. I have a limited access to the program and can't just change the binary to see how time strings are changed.

I hope that it may be some standard of binary format for time. Who knows?

Update It's a PC with windows 98. I can fetch signed integer values from the log with unpack 'i', $part_of_bin_str

The program contorls a phone station and writes log messages which I want to parse and modify. I think that time granularity is far less than one second. Something like T1. The timestamp is not generated by PC but comes from phone station.
