Convert Unix Time

If you happen to be working on a system where you want to convert unix time to human readable format, use this:

perl -p -e 's/^([0-9]*)/"[".localtime($1)."]"/e'

Its a perl command that when applied to a .log file allows you to convert unix time to a format that is readable to the user.  You can pretty much use this with other small shell tools to do wonderful things.
