tai64nlocal - converts precise TAI64N timestamps to a human-readable
tai64nlocal reads lines from stdin. If a line does not begin with @,
tai64nlocal writes it to stdout without change. If a line begins with
@, tai64nlocal looks for a timestamp after the @, in the format printed
by tai64n(8), and writes the line to stdout with the timestamp
converted to local time in ISO format: YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS.SSSSSSSSS.
For example, in the US/Pacific time zone, the input line
should be printed as
1999-08-23 21:03:43.787492500 mark
Beware, however, that the current implementation of tai64nlocal relies
on the UNIX localtime library routine to find the local time. Some
localtime implementations use a broken time scale that does not account
for leap seconds. On systems that use the Olson tz library (with an up-
to-date leap-second table), you can fix this problem by setting your
time zone to, e.g, right/US/Pacific instead of US/Pacific.
Beware also that most localtime implementations are not
tai64nlocal does not allocate any memory after it starts, except
possibly inside localtime.
tai64nlocal exits 0 when it sees end of input. It exits 111 without an
error message if it has trouble reading stdin or writing stdout.
