      Convert "Julian Seconds" to a date/time string.


Calling Sequence

      dt = dt_tm_fromjs(js)


      js = "Julian Seconds". in

Keyword Parameters


        FORMAT=fmt format for dt (see dt_tm_mak).
          Def = "Y$ n$ d$ h$:m$:s$ w$"
        /FRACTION displays fraction of second in default format.
        DECIMAL=dp Number of decimal places to use for fraction of
          second (def=3) for f$ in format. f$ will include dec pt.
        DENOMINATOR=den If given then fraction is listed as nnn/ddd
          ddd is given by den. Over-rides DECIMAL keyword. Ex:
          DENOM=1000 might give 087/1000 for f$ in format.
        DDECIMAL=ddp Number of decimal places to use in day
          of year (if doy$ included in format, def=none).
        YEAR=yy returns extracted year.
        MONTH=mm returns extracted month.
        DAY=dd returns extracted day.
        SECOND=ss returns extracted seconds after midnight.
        JD=jd returns extracted Julian Day of date.
        NUMBERS=st Returned structure with numeric values.


      dt = date/time string. out

Common Blocks


      Notes: Julian seconds (not an official unit) serve the
        same purpose as Julian Days, interval computations.
        The zero point is 0:00 1 Jan 2000, so js < 0 before then.
        Julian Seconds are double precision and have a precision
        better than 1 millisecond over a span of +/- 1000 years.
