Changing Time Stamp into hours minutes seconds?

Recommended Posts

Hey I was wondering how I could change the outputed 15600 seconds into the number ofd hours minutes and seconds? I need this for a count down feature.

Is there a function that can do this? I have looked around but only confused myself

No function I know of... you'll just have to do a little math.
[code]$hours = floor($total_secs / 3600);
$min = floor(($total_secs % 3600) / 60);
$sec = floor(($total_secs % 3600) % 60);[/code]

Heh... I just came up with that... I might have to use that somewhere.

lol... very similar to what i wrote up earlier this morning, too, ober... i was a little more verbose to aid in understanding, though:
[code]
function getTimeDiff($ts1, $ts2) {
  $diff = abs($ts1 - $ts2);

  $sec = 1;
  $min = $sec * 60;
  $hour = $min * 60;
  $day = $hour * 24;

  $dayDiff = floor($diff / $day);
  $diff = $diff % $day;
  $hourDiff = floor($diff / $hour);
  $diff = $diff % $hour;
  $minDiff = floor($diff / $min);
  $secDiff = $diff % $min;
  
  return "$dayDiff days $hourDiff hours $minDiff mins $secDiff seconds";
}

echo getTimeDiff(time(), mktime(0,0,0,12,2,2005));
[/code]

I read the post and thinking issint it better to insert the data in this format $count_down_time=date("hms");
and then use a for loop to count down.

Here's a function I just came up with that uses the standard date() and strtotime() functions:
[code]<?php
function get_hms($secs) {
     if ($secs > 86400) return (false);
     $mid = strtotime(date('Y-m-d 00:00:00',strtotime('now')));
     list($hns['hour'],$hms['min'],$hms['sec']) = explode(':', date('G:i:s',$mid + $secs));
     return($hms);
}?>[/code]

Returns an array containing the number of Hours, Minutes, Second or FALSE if the input number is more than a day (86,400 seconds).
