%time to number
 
Been trying to play with a way to take the %time feature and convert it to a number to compare times..
Example of what I want to physically see.

You stab Bob twice in rapid succession with your dirk.

You have recovered balance. (Recover: 2.16 sec)

So on the stab.. I store the time data... On the recover I take the stab time data and subtract it from the
recovered balance data and show the output. I'm sure this is easy but I just can't figure out the right
commands.

Thanks!

I am pretty sure that people have discussed time math before, try searching the forums

What do you need the exact time for anyhow?

I would get time on the first pattern and count it to second:

Code:
$time_stun = (%time(ss)*1000+%time(zz))


On second pattern I would do the same:

Code:
$time_recover = (%time(ss)*1000+%time(zz))


Than substract one from another

Code:
$time_dif = ($time_recover - $time_now)


And convert it to something more readable:

Code:
$second = ($time_dif/1000)
$time_dif = ($time_dif-($second*1000))
$mili = $time_dif
#sub {You have recovered balance. (Recover: %second.$mili sec)


Hope that helps.

That is what the built-in function "%secs" is for.

You can use this if you want.

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>
<cmud>
  <class name="StopWatch" copy="yes">
    <notes>To use the StopWatch just put StopWatchStart into the script where you want to start it. Then put StopWatchStop where you want to stop it and display the time.</notes>
    <alias name="StopWatchStart" copy="yes">
      <value>stopWatch.StartTime = %secs</value>
    </alias>
    <alias name="StopWatchStop" copy="yes">
      <value>stopWatch.ElapsedTime = (%secs - @stopWatch.StartTime)
$time = (@stopWatch.ElapsedTime / 1000.00)
#print {Elapsed Time: $time s}</value>
    </alias>
    <var name="stopWatch" type="Record" usedef="true" copy="yes">
      <value>StartTime=0|ElapsedTime=0</value>
      <json>{"ElapsedTime":0,"StartTime":0}</json>
      <default>StartTime=0|ElapsedTime=0</default>
    </var>
  </class>
</cmud>
