    A nice, simple question

    I have been keeping a log file for how many seconds I have been testing out my latest program, using the clock() function. Now, I want to convert this into days, hours, minutes, and seconds. I know modulus division is involved somewhere, but I never did pay attention to that ...

    Here's how

    Code:
    int a = 7;
    int b = 3;
    
    cout << a%b << endl;
    (or)
    printf("%d", a%b);
    OUTPUT:
    1


    "%" is the modulus "/"

    Yes...well...
    I know how to do modulus division, it just leaves a remainder, but I was wondering how I convert seconds into various other time increments? Do I first put the seconds into days, then do modulus division by 24 to get hours????????????????????? Kill me now

    An hour has 3600 secs so if you divide the number of secs you have with 3600 you'll get the hour

    Code:
    int totsec=36250; //assuming this value
    int hrs,min,rem; //rem=remainder time
    
    hrs=totsec/3600;
    rem=totsec%3600;
    
    min=rem/60;
    rem=rem%60;
    
    cout<<"30,000 seconds = "<<hrs<<" HOURS, "<<min<<" MINUTES and "<<rem<<" SECONDS";
    the ouptut should be : 10 HOURS, 4 MINUTES and 10 SECONDS

    i hope this is what you are asking..
