How to convert date to timestamp Perl? Use Date::Parse to convert normal date string to epoch timestamp. Date::Parse provides two routines for parsing date strings into time values.

str2time(DATE [, ZONE])

str2time parses DATE and returns a Unix time value or undef upon failure. ZONE, if given, specifies the timezone to assume when parsing if the date string does not specify a timezone.

strptime(DATE [, ZONE])

strptime takes the same arguments as str2time but returns an array of values ($ss,$mm,$hh,$day,$month,$year,$zone). Elements are only defined if they could be extracted from the date string. The $zone element is the timezone offset in seconds from GMT. An empty array is returned upon failure.
