NAMEmbtime - Translate between calendar time values and unix time.
SYNOPSISmbtime [-Mtime_d -Tyear/month/day/hour/minute/second -V -H]
DESCRIPTIONThe program mbtime converts time values between unix time (seconds since 1970/01/01 00:00:00.000000) and calendar time (e.g. 2008/006/05/17/24/32.000000). Unix time is also known as POSIX time or epoch time, and are typically represented in MB-System documentation (and source code) as "time_d" values. The input time is set using the command line arguments -Mtime_d for epoch seconds and -Tyear/month/day/hour/minute/second for calendar time. The output time (in the form not specified as input) is written to stdout.
