Welcome to the Cmdr project, written by Andreas Kupries.

For availability please read Cmdr - How To Get The Sources.

This package provides the validation type ::cmdr::validate::time which accepts timestamps in both ISO 8601 syntax and as epoch values, i.e. positive integer seconds since the beginning of unix time.

The internal, canonical representation is the epoch for the validated input.

The type has no input completion.

The details of the exported standard API can be found in Cmdr - Writing custom validation types. The chosen default is "now".

A single non-standard method is provided:

::cmdr::validate::time 2external epoch

This method converts the epoch of a time to the form %Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S and returns the conversion result as its own.
