# etstr¶

## Purpose¶

Formats an elapsed time measured in hundredths of a second to a string.

## Format¶

str = etstr(tothsecs)
Parameters

tothsecs (scalar) – an elapsed time measured in hundredths of a second, as given, for instance, by the ethsec() function.

Returns

str (string) –

containing the elapsed time in the form:

 # days # hours # minutes #,## seconds

## Examples¶

// Set start time
t_start = { 2012, 1, 2, 0 };

// Set end time
t_end = { 2012, 1, 14, 815642 };

// Find elapsed time in hundredths of secs
tothsecs = ethsec(t_start, t_end);

// Convert elapsed time to string format
str = etstr(tothsecs);

print "tothsecs   = " tothsecs;
print "str = " str;


Output:

tothsecs   = 104495642.000
str = 12 days  2 hours  15 minutes  56.42 seconds
