So, the setup is that I have the time, in seconds, since the epoch and I want to turn this into a date I can actually understand. How do I do this in Haskell? If it is possible, how would I extract days/hours/minutes out of this new encoding?
posixSecondsToUTCTime (you can convert another numeric type to the input expected
Data.Time.Calendar has a lot of the things you need to extract day, month, etc from the
Day that forms a part of
UTCTime, the rest of the package has other useful utilities.
Prelude> import Data.Time.Format.ISO8601
Prelude Data.Time.Format.ISO8601> import Data.Time.Clock.POSIX
Prelude Data.Time.Format.ISO8601 Data.Time.Clock.POSIX> iso8601Show $ posixSecondsToUTCTime $ 100
