I want to convert time/date data into unix clock time (which is the
number of seconds since 00:00:00 GMT Jan 1, 1970.) For instance,
I should be able to compute the clock time for 00:00:00 EST Dec 25, 1990.
Unix provides several function (see man ctime) for conversion of the unix
clock time into ASCII form. But I cannot find a utility to do the opposite.
Is there an easy way short of adding up all the seconds since the epoch?
