cdflib.epochBreakdown

Convert CDF_EPOCH value into time value

Syntax

timeVec = cdflib.epochBreakdown(epochTime)

Description

timeVec = cdflib.epochBreakdown(epochTime) decomposes the CDF_EPOCH value, epochTime value into individual time components. timeVec will have 7-by-n elements, where n is the number of CDF_EPOCH values in epochTime.

The return value timeVec has the following elements:

timeVec ElementDescriptionValid Values
timeVec(1,:)Year AD e.g. 1994
timeVec(2,:)Month1–12
timeVec(3,:)Day1–31
timeVec(4,:)Hour0–23
timeVec(5,:)Minute0–59
timeVec(6,:)Second0–59
timeVec(7,:)Millisecond0–999

Examples

Convert a CDP_EPOCH value into a time vector.

% First convert a time vector into a CDF_EPOCH value
timeval = [1999 12 31 23 59 59 0];
epoch = cdflib.computeEpoch(timeval);

% Convert the CDF_EPOCH value into a time vector
timevec = cdflib.epochBreakdown(epoch)

timevec =

        1999
          12
          31
          23
          59
          59
           0
