SwordfishUser: UnixTimeDate

A small module to convert a Unix timestamp to Readable Date/time.

Defines a structure to hold the date after the conversion and names it SntpTime. A conversion from a Proton version by Gabi

The variables in the structute are:-

    Sec As Byte
    Min As Byte 
    Hour As Byte 
    Year As Word 
    Month As Byte
    Day As Byte
    Dow As Byte
    DowStr As String * 3

Demo code

    Include "usart.bas"
    Include "convert.bas"
    Include "unixtimedate.bas"


    Dim unixtime As LongWord

    SetBaudrate(br19200)

    unixtime = 34857915 

    UnixToDate(unixtime)

    USART.Write(SntpTime.DowStr,DecToStr(SntpTime.Day),32,DecToStr(SntpTime.Month),32)
    USART.Write(DecToStr(SntpTime.Year),32,DecToStr(SntpTime.Hour),":",DecToStr(SntpTime.Min))
    USART.Write(":",DecToStr(SntpTime.Sec))
