Wire64 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hi wisdom monks,
Im trying to write someting that will a number of display messages based on systemclock, ill try to explain.
Say i got 10 messages and i want to show one every 5 seconds. so 1 message shows when the time is between 0:00 and 0:04seconds;
2nd message will show 0:05 <-> 0:09 seconds. ... message 10 will show 0:45 <-> 0:49.
then message 1 will show again from 0:50 <-> 0:54. 2 will be 0:55 <-> 0:59
when minute 1 starts i want it to start with message 3, thats 1:00 <-> 1:04
My question is how do i calculate this :)
hope this makes sence, thanks in advanced,
dont have much that will do the above but will show you where i'am at now.
