Hi Chris and all,

this li'l function will do exactly that.

I wrote it for my players ;-)

function smpte_lite dauer
   set the numberformat to xx
   put dauer div 60 into minu
   put dauer mod 60 into seku
   return minu & ":" & seku
end smpte_lite

Call it with the secs as the argument.

   put smpte_lite(90) into fld "duration"
   ### gives "01:30" :-D

Have a nice day.
