DateTime says

    Parsing Dates

    This module does not parse dates! That means there is no constructor to which you can pass things like "March 3, 1970 12:34".

    Instead, take a look at the various DateTime::Format::* modules on CPAN. These parse all sorts of different date formats, and you're bound to find something that can handle your particular needs.

I searched around in metacpan and found Date::Parse and the Synopsis seems to do the job well, at least for epoch

use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dump qw/pp dd/; use Date::Parse; use DateTime; pp my $date = 'Sat Jun 4 22:47:31 2022'; pp my $time = str2time($date); pp my ($ss,$mm,$hh,$day,$month,$year,$zone) = strptime($date); my $dt = DateTime->from_epoch ( epoch => $time, time_zone => 'UTC', # fill in your timezone ); print $dt;

"Sat Jun 4 22:47:31 2022" 1654375651 (31, 47, 22, 4, 5, 122, undef) 2022-06-04T20:47:31

Other modules - especially the one suggested by 1nickt - might be better, I just wanted to demonstrate how to solve it by yourself.

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.
