Maxim, you helped me a lot! It works now. Here is the result, written in The algorithm is yours, I just had to apply it properly. Thanks again for your help. I must be getting senile these days.

#!/usr/bin/perl -w
use strict;
sub cnv_tim($);

sub cnv_tim($) {

    my $A = shift;
    my ( $sec, $min, $hr, $dd, $mm, $yr ) =       localtime( ( $A * 1024 ) / 1000000000 );     $yr += 1900;
    my $str = sprintf( "%d-%d-%d %d:%d:%d\n", $yr, $mm, $dd, $hr, $min, $sec );

    return ($str);
map { print "tim=$_ --> ", cnv_tim($_); } _at_ARGV;

Here is how to run it:

mgogala_at_nycwxp2622:/tmp$ ./ttt 1233122413959653 tim=1233122413959653 --> 2010-1-5 13:49:11                 

You can put as many "tim" timestamps on the command line as necessary, the script will convert them all, one line per timestamp. Some people object to my function declarations but I used to program in C and have carried over some habits.
