I am generating a CSV file with the first 2 columns in the Epoch time format.
Here is some sample code:
my $dt1=shift @f;
my $dt2=shift @f;
printf "%s,%s,%s\n",scalar localtime($dt1),scalar localtime($dt2),join
1345752662, 1345752673, CLOSED, CRITICAL, Other fields etc
The working part of this really is the scalar localtime
part. There are other ways of doing this, but this is a time honored method that works. Brute force, but it works.
Here is what perldoc -f localtime says that is pertinate to your situation:
If EXPR is omitted, "localtime()" uses the current time
returned by time(3)).
In scalar context, "localtime()" returns the ctime(3) v
$now_string = localtime; # e.g., "Thu Oct 13 04:54
This scalar value is not locale-dependent but is a Perl
builtin. For GMT instead of local time use the "gmtime"
Hope this is of some help.
