Convert COARDS time specification to a datetime object.

Project description

This module converts between a given COARDS time specification and a Python datetime object, which is much more useful. Suppose you have an Array of values [1,2,3] and units “days since 1998-03-01 12:00:00”:

>>> a = [1, 2, 3]
>>> units = 'days since 1998-03-01 12:00:00'
>>> b = [from_udunits(value, units) for value in a]
>>> print b[0].year
>>> b[1] > b[0]
>>> print b[1] - b[0]
1 day, 0:00:00

The list b now contains objects which can be compared and manipulated in a consistent way.

The latest version is available in a Subversion repository.
