I do not understand the time encoding of the first line below. I got it in a sample record file and I just have the number but I don't know how it transforms into the corresponding time.

This is the data record:

REC:1:Procedure Start Time: 7499969 (02:04:59.969 UTC)

As you can see, I only have a number.


That looks suspiciously like the number of milliseconds since midnight of that day.

$ echo $((7499969/1000))

$ echo $((2*60*60 + 4*60 + 59))
