Subject: representing a span of time
Say I have two time objects represented as floats like so:
x = 64299600.0
y = 1157489583.2798
I want to subtract x from y and then represent the difference
months, days, hours, minutes and seconds.
I don't see how the Time library would do this. Has anyone done
something like this? If so, how?
