Date format of the log files

Hi all,

I am interested how the “magical number” contained in the mothur log files can be parsed
to the date the file is created( if this number describes the creation time ).
( I currently tryed to get a java java.util.Date-object, but this fails … )
I am developing a tool to analyse the logfile.

Best regards,


The time stamp is created with the following code: time_t ltime = time(NULL); /* calendar time */

Hi westcott,

Ty for your reply, now I can parse the correct time.
