We have a number of skilled programmers here, just post your little codes which don't do much for others to start learning how to code from examples.

One of my own, simple matlab code to go from seconds to hh:mm:ss, this program works with a vector of values and maybe a matrix. I've not bothered with making a read in fuction since matlab codes work from plain text files but one could be added very easily.


t = 3661;
%Choose your t values, use [value1, value2, value3, ..., valueN] for a vector of values

a = rem(t,3600);
%Gets remainder when we remove hours

hh = (t-a)/3600;
%Gives hh in hours

t = t - hh*3600;
%Removes hours from t

a = rem(t,60);
%Gets remainder when we remove minutes

mm = (t-a)/60;
%Gives mm in mins

ss = t - mm*60
%Finds the seconds


%Outputs the hh:mm:ss as a series of three values over each other.

This code can be expanded for any time unit.

Edit: Bug spotted by JNengland77, stupid mornings hurting my coding skills

Post your own and it might help someone.

Dauth thought I should post this bit of code inspired by this xkcd comic.

long sheepCount = 1;
int notAsleep = 1;
while &#40; notAsleep &#41;
printf&#40; &#34;%ld&#34;, sheepCount++ &#41;;
notAlseep = checkAsleep&#40; sheepCount &#41;;
sleep&#40; 1 &#41;;

C/C++ code. checkAsleep( ) should be something strange, but haven't thought what it would be yet.
