todatenum

Convert CDF epoch object to MATLAB datenum

Syntax

n = todatenum(obj)

Description

n = todatenum(obj) converts the CDF epoch object ep_obj into a MATLAB® serial date number. Note that a CDF epoch is the number of milliseconds since 01-Jan-0000 whereas a MATLAB datenum is the number of days since 00-Jan-0000.

Examples

Construct a CDF epoch object from a date string, and then convert the object back into a MATLAB date string:

dstr = datestr(today)
dstr =
   08-Oct-2003

obj = cdfepoch(dstr)
obj =
     cdfepoch object:
     08-Oct-2003 00:00:00

dstr2 = datestr(todatenum(obj))
dstr2 =
   08-Oct-2003
