Conversion Functions

chr expr

Returns the character represented by the decimal value expr.

gmtime [ expr ]

In list context, converts a time as returned by the time function to a nine-element list with the time localized for timezone UTC (GMT).

In scalar context, returns a formatted string.

Without expr, uses the current time.

Use the standard module Time::gmtime for by-name access to the elements of the list; see localtime on the next page.

hex expr

Returns the decimal value of expr interpreted as an hexadecimal string. The string may, but need not, start with 0x. For other conversions, see oct below.

localtime [ expr ]

Like gmtime, but uses the local time zone.

Use the standard module Time::localtime for byname access to the elements of the list:
