Hi Alex,

Ouch, all the discussion was relating to Kst 2.0.7, not even released and where we are currently implementing the reading of ASCII-formatted time just as in your case.

Yes, because Kst &.x can read only numerical values. It probably stops at the first non-digit character.

Correct. But if you preprocess time to be written as a C time (numerical value) then I think you have better chances.

I think C time interpretation already worked on Kst 1.x, but I have never really used it and I haven't used Kst 1.x in a long time!
Maybe the information at http://www.epochconverter.com/ can help.
