The current Unix epoch time is:
Convert unix timestamp to human readable format
Convert human readable format to unix timestamp
The RFC 2822 formatted date
Formatting seconds into days, hours, minutes
UNIX time, also referred to as POSIX or epoch time involves a system of keeping track of time that is important to all those who specialize in the fields of computer technology. Its importance is founded on the simplicity that it is a count in seconds of the time that has elapsed since 1st January 1970.
This tool makes it very easy for programming and computing in time related issues such as sorting and mathematics. This UNIX time converter tool can always be used to convert the time to a normal date format for human understanding or to convert normal time into UNIX time.
The tool is also quite useful for those who deal with UNIX internal time formats on a daily basis. UNIX time stamp is the number of seconds that have passed from midnight UTC/GMT January 1, 1970 though not counting leap seconds. This means time zero is midnight 1/1/1970.
Many computer systems store their epoch dates in the form of a signed 32-bit integer that just might be a problem on January 19, 2038 commonly referred to as year 2038 or Y2038 problem or bug.
This tool gives you a number of versions of the UNIX time and it is up to you to make use of the version you desire. You have the human readable time in seconds; you get the current Unix epoch time; you can convert Unix timestamp to human readable format in GMT and your time zone; you can convert human readable format to Unix timestamp in Epoch time and UTC date and time as a string; you can convert the RFC 2822 formatted date into Epoch timestamp and finally you can format Epoch time into seconds into days, into hours, and into minutes.
