This Timestamp Converter converts POSIX compliant Timestamps to readable Dates, and vice versa.  Many Operating Systems (e.g. Unix, Linux, etc.) and Programming Languages (e.g. Java, PERL, PHP, Python, etc.), store their dates and times as System Timestamps. These System Timestamps are based on the number of milliseconds (Java, Javascript, etc.) or seconds (Unix, Linux, PERL) since January 1, 1970 UTC, which is known as the Epoch.  For more information about how Computer System times work, please refer to the wikipedia article: System Time.

This Tool, allows you convert between a computer readable System Timestamp, and a human readable Date/Time; and can display the Date/Time in various formats and in various Time Zones.

NOTE: This tool interacts with your System Clipboard (so you can paste the values into other applications) and so you may see a security warning.  Please accept the warning, to use the Tool.
