    Unix Timestamp Creation

    Hello,

    I am pulling my hair out over this one and google has been of no help.

    I'm looking to create a unix timestamp from a given date/time in C. I have looked into using strptime however this doesn't appear to do as I hoped.

    Does anyone have a solution to this?

    Phil

    Are you in Unix? Have you typed "man 3 time"?

    Can you post how the input ie date/time in C looks like.
