Extracting difference in hours...
Posted by shafa.fahad (FahaD), 4 December 2006Hi,
I have two string which represent time...
use POSIX q/mktime/;
string1 = time; ( would give me the current date)
string2 = "Tue Dec 24 14:04:16 2006"
I would like to extract difference in hours between two strings....
I Appreciate your patience,
Thanks in advance,
Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 4 December 2006I would convert each time into a list - sec, mins, hrs, day, month, year and then use timelocal to get the seconds from 1.1.1970. The difference between the two times, divided by 3600, is the hours difference.
I expect it's been done many times before, so I expect there's a module that does exactly that
