Great idea! In fact, I had the same one earlier in this thread at least six hours ago. :-) Here's the relevant sub by itself:

use Inline C => q@ int epoch_sec(char * date) { char *tz_str = date + 26; struct tm tm; int tz; if ( strlen(date) != 31 || strptime(date, "%a, %d %b %Y %T", &tm) == NULL || sscanf(tz_str, "%d", &tz) != 1) { printf("Invalid date %s\n", date); return 0; } return timegm(&tm) - (tz < 0 ? -1 : 1)*(abs(tz)/100*3600 + abs(tz)%100*60); } @;

Performs about 25 times faster than str2time.
