in reply to Converting dates later than 2038 into epochseconds

What about Date::Parse?
Update: Do you negitive numbers for dates before 1970?
Update: I did a little testing of this and it won't work for your needs. Sorry for the bum suggestion. Oddly enough it will give you answers for dates before 1970 if that helps.
#/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use Date::Parse; my $date; $date = "Aug, 20 1955 11:09:55 +0100"; my $time; $time = str2time($date); print " $date\n"; print " $time\n" # perl Aug, 20 1955 11:09:55 +0100 -453390605
