Problem converting a System Time to DateTime


Hi All

I am new to Ruby and working on a project which needs to read a
SystemTime (milliseconds from 1 Jan 1970) from an xml file and convert
it to a DateTime.

Unfortunately I cant seem to find any method for doing so in either
the Date or Time classes. Does such a function exist? If not, is there
any other way to do this?

Thanks for you help

Of course once I have clicked send, I find the solution imediately. wasnt working because one of my Unix Times was corrupt, of
course it was the very first one so I never realised the rest of them
were working since it bombed out with a Bignum error on the very first

Thanks anyway
