-d doesn't work(date: Not a recognized flag: d):

date -d @1141421607

and awk's

awk -vNEXTEXECDATUM="$NEXTEXECDATUM" 'BEGIN { print strftime("%c", NEXTEXECDATUM); exit }'

doesn't work: "awk: 0602-553 Function strftime is not defined."

AIX comes with Perl, so use that for your requirement.

perl -le 'print scalar localtime(shift)' 1141421607
