unix time to something my brain can handle

Is there any utility, command line app or such that I can use to change (convert) regular clock/time values into unix time values and vice versa?

why do you want to do this?
I ask because usually the only people who use system time are programmers who have tools to do what you ask
where are you seeing this value?
if you're programming, what language?

Time/date stamps like that still show up in the auditd logs. I'm playing with an xml file that uses a start time in that format and I wanted to figure out what it meant.

He he, if we walked up to someone and asked the time and they said "1184295694" I'd just walk away.

So I checked out a few conversion tools like gonvert, qalculate-gtk and units, but I guess in the end Dies link works the easiest! I was hoping for something like that that worked locally like GepochFor Dummies. You don't see it everyday, but it is meaningless without some sort of conversion util when you do run into it.

But thanks for the link Dies!
