File Information
Description

A very simple program to convert a time in seconds to a string giving the time in hours, minutes and seconds. Useful for producing readable toc output from programs which run for ages.

e.g.

help secs2hms
 SECS2HMS - converts a time in seconds to a string giving the time in hours, minutes and second
 Usage TIMESTRING = SECS2HMS(TIME)]);
 Example 1: >> secs2hms(7261)
 >> ans = 2 hours, 1 min, 1.0 sec
 Example 2: >> tic; pause(61); disp(['program took ' secs2hms(toc)]);
 >> program took 1 min, 1.0 secs

I think much the same could be done with:

nSecs = 90;
datestr(nSecs/86400, 'HH:MM:SS.FFF')

Nice! This is useful for extended numerical calculations/ simulaitons. I have developed a similar function a while ago that I find useful (even simpler, but also faster than yours) -- will post it on the web.

should read: _NO_ H1 line ...

This file contains H1 line , no help section and no comments, which makes it rather useless. First, how will you find the name of this file in the future if you cannot use LOOKFOR. Secondly, even if you find it, how will you know how to use it, if you cannot use HELP. Third, the total lack of comments makes it difficult to decipher what an end-user should do. In other words, it is only useful to someone with some matlab skills already. On the other hand, she or he will probably stick to something more matlab-ish like:

TimeInSecs = 7261 ;
disp(datestr(datenum(0,0,0,0,0,TimeInSecs),'HH:MM:SS'))

Name is too long; have to manually change it to s2hms.
Other than that, pretty cool code.
