Name

strftime — transform UNIX time (number of seconds) to a date/time string, according to specified format

DESCRIPTION

The filter transforms UNIX time (measured in a number of seconds since the epoch) to human-readable date/time string, according to the specified format.

If the format is unspecified, the system outputs time in the default format, such as Fri Dec 16 15:04:33 2005.

EXAMPLES

No examples are available at this time. We do consider this a problem and will try to supply some.
