DateTime::Format::Epoch::NTP(3) Convert DateTimes to/from NTP epoch seconds


use DateTime::Format::Epoch::NTP;
my $dt = DateTime::Format::Epoch::NTP->parse_datetime( 3629861151 );
print $dt->datetime; # '2015-01-10T06:45:51'
my $formatter = DateTime::Format::Epoch::NTP->new();
my $dt = DateTime->new( year => 2015, month => 1, day => 10,
time_zone => 'Europe/Amsterdam' );
print $formatter->format_datetime($dt); # '3629833200'


This module can convert a DateTime object (or any object that can be converted to a DateTime object) to the number of seconds since the NTP epoch.

The NTP epoch uses UTC; if you parse an NTP date your DateTime object will be using the UTC timezone.


Most of the methods are the same as those in DateTime::Format::Epoch. The only difference is the constructor.
  • new()

    Constructor of the formatter/parser object. It has no parameters.


Support for this module is provided via the [email protected] email list. See for more details.
