    convert integer unix timestamp to time

    does anyone know of an easy way to create a time_t variable from a timestamp integer.

    or more generally, convert an int containing a timestamp to a string containing a readable date.

    i know how to do this for the current time.

    TIA, rotis23

    thanks, thats what i wanted to know!

    i get the timestamp from a mysql database as an element in a mysql_row which is effectively a char**. i then convert it into numerical form to do time difference calculations.
