in thread TIME::LOCAL from within KSH

What version of "date(1)" are you talking about? My version (MacOSX/darwin, based on bsd) doesn't have a "-d" option at all, and on a freebsd machine, "-d" means "set the kernel's value for daylight savings time". (Looks like the Solaris 5.8's "date" didn't have "-d" either, and on a linux box, "-d STRING" doesn't seem to report seconds since epoch, but  date +%s does.)

Just curious...

    Sorry, OP didn't mention anything about his/her env.

    "-d STRING" doesn't seem to report seconds since epoch, but date +%s does

    "-d STRING" will be used for passing custom time, otherwise you'll be formatting the current time ;-)

    e.g.:

    $ date -d '1987-12-18 12:13:14' -u '+%s' 566827994 $ date -d '1987-12-18' -u '+%s' 566784000
