> standers universal timestamp
You're thinking of the US localized 'middle endian' fomat, I imagine:
MM/DD/YYYY or something?
The only universal standards are the RFC2822 timestamp you get on emails, and the ISO8601 (YYYY-MM-DD) ones.
When you're talking about the unix timestamp, I'm guessing you have a single, rather large number like this:
This is the number of seconds since Midnight UTC on Jan 1st 1970 (which is when Unix time began). You should be able to do this with perl if you have it (or use the strftime call from c/c++ on unix).
Here's an example in perl:
use POSIX qw(strftime);
print strftime("%d/%m/%Y\n", localtime('1138032417'));
Don't Stand on your head - you'll get footprints in your hair
