Unread post Time lapse subroutine for seconds past or formatted duration
Here is a handy subroutine to either get the seconds past or to print out a readable period of time (this includes additional code for testing purposes):

Sample output:

Code:
Unformatted seconds passed: 216094

Formatted  time passed: 2 Days, 12 Hrs, 1 Min, 34 Secs



Code:
#  Return total seconds by default using Boolean value.  0 for seconds or 1 for readable duration:
setVar $_MARKTIME_FORMAT 0

#  ...

goSub :TIMESTAMP
setVar $start_time $_TIMESTAMP


#  e.g., test time lapse...  (Note TWX appears to internally round  the value up to the nearest full second.)
setDelayTrigger 1 :TEST_DURATION 8500
pause


:TEST_DURATION
killTrigger 1
goSub :TIMESTAMP
setVar $end_time $_TIMESTAMP
goSub :MARKTIME


echo "** Unformatted seconds passed: " $_MARKTIME "**"

setVar $_MARKTIME_FORMAT 1
goSub :MARKTIME

echo "** Formatted  time passed: " $_MARKTIME "**"

halt


:TIMESTAMP
#  Returns a timestamp decimal value.
getTime $_DATE mm:dd:yyyy
getTime $_TIME hh:nn:ss
replaceText $_DATE ":" "/"

setVar $date_time $_DATE & " " & $_TIME
format $date_time $_TIMESTAMP STRTODATETIME

return

:MARKTIME
#  Returns a readable format based upon the seconds lapsed.  This function is accurate only to the hole second.
setVar $_MARKTIME ""
setVar $days 0
setVar $hrs 0
setVar $mins 0

setPrecision 20
setVar $secs (($end_time-$start_time)*86400)
setPrecision 0
round $secs 0

if ($_MARKTIME_FORMAT = 1)
if ($secs > 59)
  setVar $mins ($secs/60)
  setVar $secs ($secs-(60*$mins))
end
if ($mins > 59)
  setVar $hrs ($mins/60)
  setVar $mins ($mins-(60*$hrs))
end
if ($hrs > 23)
  setVar $days ($hrs/24)
  setVar $hrs ($hrs-(24*$days))
end
if ($days > 0)
  format $days $format NUMBER
  stripText $format ".00"
  if ($days > 1)
   setVar $days $format & " Days"
  else
   setVar $days $format & " Day"
  end
  if ($hrs <> 0) OR ($mins <> 0) OR ($secs <> 0)
   setVar $days $days & ", "
  end
end
if ($hrs > 0)
  if ($hrs > 1)
   setVar $hrs $hrs & " Hrs"
  else
   setVar $hrs $hrs & " Hr"
  end
  if ($mins <> 0) OR ($secs <> 0)
   setVar $hrs $hrs & ", "
  end
end
if ($mins > 0)
  if ($mins > 1)
   setVar $mins $mins & " Mins"
  else
   setVar $mins $mins & " Min"
  end
  if ($secs <> 0)
   setVar $mins $mins & ", "
  end
end
if ($secs > 0)
  if ($secs > 1)
   setVar $secs $secs & " Secs"
  else
   setVar $secs $secs & " Sec"
  end
end
if ($days <> 0)
  setVar $_MARKTIME $days
end
if ($hrs <> 0)
  setVar $_MARKTIME $_MARKTIME & $hrs
end
if ($mins <> 0)
  setVar $_MARKTIME $_MARKTIME & $mins
end
if ($secs <> 0)
  setVar $_MARKTIME $_MARKTIME & $secs
end

else
setVar $_MARKTIME $secs
end

setVar $_MARKTIME_FORMAT 0

return


halt
