Convert string date/time to seconds since 1900 (String class)

[Introduced in Sirius Mods 7.8]

StringToSeconds is an intrinsic function to convert a date/time string to seconds since 1900.


%seconds = string:StringToSeconds( format, [[CentSpan=] number]) Throws InvalidDateString

Syntax terms

%seconds The float variable to receive the computed time since 1900.
string The input date/time string.
format The format of the date/time string.
CentSpan See the CENTSPAN parameter. In Sirius Mods 7.9 and later, this is a name allowed parameter. For versions prior to 7.9, it is a positional parameter.


This statement uses StringToSeconds and SecondsToString to convert a value in YYYYMMDDHHMISSIII format to the Month DAY, YYYY HH:MI:SS format:

printText {~='20110520173648965':stringToSeconds('YYYYMMDDHHMISSIII'):secondsToString('Month DAY, YYYY HH:MI:SS')}

The result is:

'20110520173648965':stringToSeconds('YYYYMMDDHHMISSIII'):secondsToString('Month DAY, YYYY HH:MI:SS')=May 20, 2011 17:36:48
