Elapsed time extensions for sailno wizard

Last edited 1st June 2018 by Jon

As of version 2.8.3, the completely numeric form of the elapsed time syntax is extended as described below.  To force the standard interpretation (seconds) use a + prefix. The extended formats are converted by Sailwave into standard form and appear in the results as such.  When doing this conversion a semicolon separator is assumed.  Other standard formats are unaffected and can still be used.

mss 0m:ss
mmss mm:ss
hmmss 0h:mm:ss
hhmmss hh:mm:ss
dhhmmss 0d:hh:mm:ss
ddhhmmss dd:hh:mm:ss

The following constraints are applied, resulting in a single beep if broken:-

0 < ss < 60
0 < mm < 100 (no hours specified)
0 < mm < 60 (hours specified)
0 < hh < 100 (no days specified)
0 < hh < 24 (days specified)


+123 = 123
123 = 1:23
12345 = 1:23:45
