As an aside:

# perl -e 'print time' will return the current time in Unix epoch form +at # So if you substract 43200, that should give you the current time min +us 30 minutes in Unix epoch format: time=$(perl -e 'print time-43200')

There are 86400 seconds in a day, so subtracting 43200 subtracts half a day. Subtract 1800 to go back half an hour.

c:\@Work\Perl\monks>perl -wMstrict -le "my $t = time; print $t; print scalar localtime $t; print scalar localtime $t - 43200; print scalar localtime $t - 1800; " 1597857155 Wed Aug 19 13:12:35 2020 Wed Aug 19 01:12:35 2020 Wed Aug 19 12:42:35 2020
See time, localtime, gmtime.
