No timezones;

This much is (sort of) trivial to fix. Add  ([+-]\d{4}) to the end of your regex, and then include - $tz/100*3600 - $tz%100*60 at the end of the expression.

sub str2epoch { my( $d, $m, $y, $H, $M, $S, $tz ) = $_[0] =~ m/^.... (\d\d) (...) (\d\d\d\d) (\d\d):(\d\d):(\d\d) ([+-]\d{4 +})/ or die "Bad format $_[0]"; my $leaps = int( ($y - 1970) / 4 + 0.5 ); (((($y-1970)*365 +$leaps+MONTHS->{$m}+($d-1))*24 +$H)*60 +$M)*60 + +$S - ($tz < 0 ? -1 : 1)*(substr($tz,1,2)*3600 + substr($tz, +3)*60); }
  • No leap seconds;
  • No daylight savings;
  • Only works for another 87 years.

See my answer for timegm, which does slow things down, but is a bit more robust. ++ for pure-Perl that out-performs the "efficient" Time::Local routines and works in most all cases, though!

Edit: Updated $tz calc for fractional hours.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
