I've tried looking at the autotools time tutorials and guides but so far I haven't had much luck figuring out a solution to my problem. I'm hoping you guys can help. I'm trying to convert at time with the format of hh:mma (ex. 02:36P) into HH.mm (ex. 14.36) and h:mm aa (ex. 2:36 pm). The first is so that I can use it as a time variable for profiles. The second is so that I can have an easier to read version. I can get the current date from %DATE if I need it, but is there a way to convert the time into a new format without needing to do that? Regardless, I'm still pretty lost on what I need to do to actually convert the time. A thought I had was to combine %DATE and the provided time to create a MM-dd-yyyy hh:mma string, but I don't know what I need to do in order to conver it into seconds. Thanks.
