CDF_ENCODE_EPOCH16

CDF_ENCODE_EPOCH16

The CDF_ENCODE_EPOCH16 function encodes a CDF_EPOCH16 value into the standard date and time character string.

Examples


test_string = '04-Dec-2005 20:19:18.176.214.648.000' 
test_epoch = CDF_PARSE_EPOCH16(test_string) 
PRINT, CDF_ENCODE_EPOCH16(test_epoch)

IDL Output

04-Dec-2005 20:19:18.176.214.648.000

Syntax


Result = CDF_ENCODE_EPOCH16(Epoch16 [, EPOCH={0 | 1 | 2 | 3}] )

Return Value


Returns the string representation of the given CDF_EPOCH16 value.

Arguments


Epoch16

The double-precision CDF_EPOCH16 value to be encoded.

Note: The CDF_EPOCH16 value can be obtained by calling CDF_EPOCH16 with the COMPUTE keyword, or by calling CDF_PARSE_EPOCH16.

Keywords


EPOCH

Set this keyword equal to one of the following integer values, specifying the epoch mode to use for output of the epoch date string:
