I have a date in the ISO format YYYY-MM-DDTHH:SS (e.g. 2014-02-14T12:30). I'd like to convert it in seconds since epoch using only the date command in linux bash.
All the dates refer to UCT locale.
I know that this question is easily eligible for duplicate... there are billions of questions about converting dates from one format to another but I can't find my particular scenario
With GNU date, specify the date to parse with
-d and seconds since epoch with
$ date -d"2014-02-14T12:30" +%s 1392381000
