Purpose

Converts DT scalar format to UTC scalar format.

Format

utc = dttoutc(dt)
Parameters:dt (Nx1 vector) – DT scalar format.
Returns:utc (Nx1 vector) – UTC scalar format.

Examples

dt = 20010326085118;
tc = dttoutc(dt);

print "tc = " tc;

The above code produces the following output:

tc = 985633642;
