    4.15: How can I take a string and turn it into epoch seconds?

    If it's a regular enough string that it always has the same format, you
    can split it up and pass the parts to "timelocal" in the standard
    "Time::Local" module. Otherwise, you should look into the "Date::Calc"
    and "Date::Manip" modules from CPAN.

    The perlfaq-workers, a group of volunteers, maintain the perlfaq. They
    are not necessarily experts in every domain where Perl might show up,
    so please include as much information as possible and relevant in any
    corrections. The perlfaq-workers also don't have access to every
    operating system or platform, so please include relevant details for
    corrections to examples that do not work on particular platforms.
    Working code is greatly appreciated.
