IDEA: time calculator
« on: May 06, 2005, 04:21:52 AM »
this is perhaps more of a plea for someone to kindly tell me of a program that already does this...

quite simply: a calculator with the usual basic functions but it works upon TIME format input, i.e. you can add 01h 33m 11s to 00h 56m 28s and obtain the result in a similar time output display.

i've had a look around and found 'time calculator pro' but it's not freeware - okay it's cheap - but i would have thought this kind of program would be a freeware thing somewhere.

of course, anyone willing to code it up from scratch would be my hero.

there are quite a few of these already, and they are indeed very useful.
can't remember any names though..  maybe snapfiles freeware search or nonags freeware will turn up something.
see the donationcoder.com links page for links: http://www.donationc...com/Links/index.html

my initial searches on 'nonags' and 'google' for the search term 'time calculator' didn't really come up with a great deal of useful matches, so i gave up  :(

thankfully your encouragement made me search 'freshmeat' and up popped 'HMScalc' http://freshmeat.net/projects/hmscalc/ it's java but it looks good to me.

that's all i can find though, am i sufferring from 'selective search result blindness' or are there really no others. there seem to be plenty of little calculators that operate on different dates - just not time.

ah i didnt read closely enough, i guess most of the apps i know are date calculators rather than time calculators..
but it looks like you found a nice one.  let us know if it turns out to be missing any key features.

(Hopefully at least the advanced time calculator above does what you need it to do.)

This is why I suggested OnlineConversion.com for the links page--it's really helpful.

Cool.  I noticed a minor typo: "Conver just about anything to anything else." :)

thanks, fixed.

OnlineConversion.com is all by itself now in that category of Best Online Reference Sites/Tools..
we'll have to add some more links, like maybe some dictionary and encyclopedias..

There is a program called "AddTime" that I found on http://www.Freewarehits.de back in 2002 that I think does what you want.  I have a copy of it, but I just went to the site & they don't seem to have it listed at all.  If you wish me to send it to you, send me a note offline @ brian_keene@yahoo.com.  The file size is only 20K.

Brian Keene

Old thread, but I've added this feature to How Long Since?

Actually, it's two timespans that are being added, not two times. I've corrected this nomenclature in an updated version of How Long Since?

Hello,

I have a time calculator that is very forgiving. Basically you can put any non-digits between the numbers and it will add them. It takes single, double and triple pairs of numbers and adds them appropriately. It is written in c# vs 2008 so it just needs .net 3.5 runtime. Let me know if you are still interested in this and you can find any bugs for me.

Thanks,
Axel
