Actually, check out the time() function.  It returns the seconds since the epoch (for whatever is considered the epoch on your platform).  'perldoc -f time' at a command prompt should give you the necessary info, or check your local copy of the Camel.

I was trying to get the epoch time (seconds  since January 1, 1970) using the Unix "date '+%s'" command. However, AIX  does not support "%s". So I am thinking about writing my own C program  just to output this seconds value, then I thought about using "localtime" in  PERL. What do you recommend?
