Unix time stamp#
Number of seconds since January 1st, 1970 GMT, also known as seconds since the epoch. Such timestamps have several advantages over broken-down date and time specifications, and are therefore in widespread use in programming languages.
It is trivial to compute differences between two such timestamps, whereas it can be very complicated to compute the difference between two dates like February 1st and April 1st (think of different numbers of days in a month, leap days and seconds, or daylight savings time.
Time zones can be ignored completely for calcuations.
Such timestamps are monotonously increasing, whereas broken-down date and time specifications have gaps and ambiguities. For example the wall-clock time 2:30 typically exists twice on the day, where daylight savings time is applied.
