I'd like to be able to convert between times specified in Unix timestamp
format and SQL datetime values without going through the slow and rather
error-prone process of converting to a human-readable date notation.
I see how to get a datetime value returned as a Unix timestamp:
tgl=> select date_part('epoch', 'now'::datetime);
But I don't see any way to supply a value in the form "900355156"
and have it get converted to datetime. Is there a way to do that?
BTW, it seems like the standard data type 'timestamp' ought to be
good for this, but it isn't as far as I can tell ... it hasn't got
any working conversions to/from integer either.
