Convert Flat File to Epoch Time

Epoch time is the UNIX time reference (represented in seconds) starting at January 1, 1970 00:00 UTC.

For example, for the Epoch timestamp: 1326209437

The conversion is:

Human time (your time zone): Tuesday, January 10, 2012 8:30:37 AM

Human time (GMT): Tue, 10 Jan 2012 15:30:37 UTC

The number representing time must be at the beginning of the log message because regex identifies the first number as the time.
