Usage considerations

Using the value parameter

The value parameter accepts Integer, Decimal (double precision floating point), and Datetime, and Array data types.

Using totime() with arrays

When operating on arrays, it is not necessary to use apply with totime. If multiple parameters are passed, or one parameter is an Array, totime will return a Time Array.

Understanding results

To return a localized time for a user, the local() function must be nested within the totime() function.

For example, totime(local(pp!starttime)) returns the localized time when a given process started. Otherwise the time is returned in GMT. This is true unless the user happens to reside in the GMT timezone, then no localization is necessary.
