( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Am I overlooking something or could your sprintf statements be written much simpler like this?

$res .= sprintf "%dw", $weeks if $weeks; $res .= sprintf "%dd", $days if $days; $res .= sprintf "%dh", $hours if $hours; $res .= sprintf "%dm", $minutes if $minutes; $res .= sprintf '%ds', $seconds;

Update: That was changed a little bit too much, as grinder correctly remarked ... nevertheless, my main concern were those ugly string interpolations, and I think this works:

$res .= sprintf "%dw", $weeks if $we +eks; $res .= sprintf "%dd", $days if $days or $we +eks; $res .= sprintf "%dh", $hours if $hours or $days or $we +eks; $res .= sprintf "%dm", $minutes if $minutes or $hours or $days or $we +eks; $res .= sprintf '%ds', $seconds;
