timetrans — Converts time into time
timetrans [units-options] [-count]
timetrans converts time from one type of unit to another. If any of the units options are specified, then timetrans will convert those time units into the number of seconds to which they add up. If given the count option, timetrans will convert that number of seconds into the appropriate number of weeks, days, hours, minutes, and seconds. The converted result is printed out. Units options cannot be specified in the same execution as the count option, and vice versa.
timetrans is intended for use with DNSSEC-Tools, for calculating a zone's expiration time.
The converted value of each unit is totaled and a single result printed.
- -seconds seconds

- -minutes minutes

- -hours hours

- -days days

The specified seconds count is converted to the appropriate number of weeks, days, hours, minutes, and seconds.
