GPS Time Utility functions
This file contains a Python implementation of GPS related time
conversions.
The two main functions convert between UTC and GPS time (GPSweek,
time of week in seconds, GPSday, time of day in seconds). The other
functions are convenience wrappers around these base functions.
A good reference for GPS time issues is:

Note that python time types are represented in seconds since (a
platform dependent Python) Epoch. This makes implementation quite
straight forward as compared to some algorigthms found in the literature
and on the web.

dayOfWeek(year,
month,
day)
returns day of week: 0=Sun, 1=Mon, .., 6=Sat 
source code



gpsFromUTC(year,
month,
day,
hour,
min,
sec,
leapSecs=14)
converts UTC to: gpsWeek, secsOfWeek, gpsDay, secsOfDay 
source code



gpsWeek(year,
month,
day)
returns (full) gpsWeek for given date (in UTC) 
source code



julianDay(year,
month,
day)
returns julian day=day since Jan 1 of year 
source code



mkUTC(year,
month,
day,
hour,
min,
sec)
similar to python's mktime but for utc 
source code













wtFromUTCpy(pyUTC,
leapSecs=14)
convenience function: allows to use python UTC times and returns only
week and tow 
source code



ymdhmsFromPyUTC(pyUTC)
returns tuple from a python time value in UTC 
source code



__package__ = ' glue '


gpsEpoch = ( 1980, 1, 6, 0, 0, 0)


secsInDay = 86400


secsInWeek = 604800

converts the python epoch to gps seconds
pyEpoch = the python epoch from time.time()

converts gps seconds to the python epoch. That is, the time that would
be returned from time.time() at gpsseconds.

converts gps week and seconds to UTC
see comments of inverse function!
SOW = seconds of week gpsWeek is the full number (not modulo 1024)

gpsFromUTC(year,
month,
day,
hour,
min,
sec,
leapSecs=14)
 source code

converts UTC to: gpsWeek, secsOfWeek, gpsDay, secsOfDay
a good reference is:
http://www.oc.nps.navy.mil/~jclynch/timsys.html
This is based on the following facts (see reference above):
GPS time is basically measured in (atomic) seconds since January 6,
1980, 00:00:00.0 (the GPS Epoch)
The GPS week starts on Saturday midnight (Sunday morning), and runs
for 604800 seconds.
Currently, GPS time is 13 seconds ahead of UTC (see above reference).
While GPS SVs transmit this difference and the date when another leap
second takes effect, the use of leap seconds cannot be predicted. This
routine is precise until the next leap second is introduced and has to be
updated after that.
SOW = Seconds of Week SOD = Seconds of Day
Note: Python represents time in integer seconds, fractions are
lost!!!
