Convert MATLAB datetime to POSIX time
p = posixtime( returns POSIX® times equivalent to the
datetime values in
t. The POSIX time is the number of seconds (including fractional seconds) elapsed
since 00:00:00 1-Jan-1970 UTC (Coordinated Universal Time), ignoring leap seconds.
p is a
If the time zone of
tis not specified, then
posixtimetreats the times in
tas UTC times. This interpretation might differ from your treatment of “unzoned”
datetimearrays in other contexts. For example, you might think of
datetime('now')as returning your local time. However,
posixtimeinterprets it as a UTC time.
If the time zone of
tis specified, then
posixtimeuses the offset for the time zone to compute POSIX times with respect to UTC.
The best practice is to specify the time zone of

datetime values and convert them to the equivalent POSIX® times. Show the differences in POSIX times between zoned and unzoned
datetime values. The best practice is to specify a time zone for a
datetime array before calling
datetime array and specify its time zone.
t1 = datetime('2016-07-29 10:05:24') + calmonths(1:3); t1.TimeZone = 'America/New_York'
t1 = 1x3 datetime 29-Aug-2016 10:05:24 29-Sep-2016 10:05:24 29-Oct-2016 10:05:24
t1 to the equivalent POSIX times.
posixtime accounts for the time zone offset when it computes POSIX times.
format longG p1 = posixtime(t1)

datetime array with the same values as
t1, but with no time zone. Convert it to the equivalent POSIX times.
posixtime treats the times in
t2 as UTC times, with no time zone offset.
t2 = datetime('2016-07-29 10:05:24') + calmonths(1:3); p2 = posixtime(t2)
p2 = 1×3 1472465124 1475143524 1477735524
Show the differences between
p1. The differences are equal to the time offset, in seconds, between UTC and the time zone of
p2 - p1
