[gnosti]: Hi, Looking for a module that can add HH:MM:SS durations like 1:40, 1:00:24.13 and 12.3? I see on CPAN more modules with absolute dates. TIA
[kcott]: s/imput/input/
[Corion]: DateTime::Duration ? Personally,I convert stuff to seconds using Time::Piece or Time::Local and then add the seconds and then use POSIX::strftime to print them as hours again
[marto]: good morning all, TCIF
[gnosti]: I'm reading from ffmpeg lengths of video clips in H:M:S and needing to add them and format them back to H:M:S for feeding back to ffmpeg
[marioroy]: kcott Thanks
[Corion]: gnosti: I would cheat and use my approach instead of dealing with durations as objects, or a module
[Corion]: You could even do the calculation directly - my $duration = $H * 3600+ $M*60 + $S; strftime '%H:%M:%S', timelocal($duratio n)
