How can I take a string and turn it into epoch sec
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.
