Hello All,

I need to take user input value into the system and convert it to a time format.

as an example :- if user input value as 3, i need to convert this value into 3 hours.

Is this possible in shell scripting.

Thank you,

What is the formula for converting 5 into 3 hours?

Try to give a reasonable example.

Yes it is possible. You will have to figure out how you think that 5 translates to 3 hours though, then write a formula for your script.

This is not a good question - we cannot work out from that little what you are trying to do.
There is no obvious conversion from "5" to "3 hours" so until you explain in rather more detail what you need we can't help you!

What do you mean by 'convert'? 3 is already equal to 3. Please use the Improve question link above, and give a proper explanation of what you are trying to achieve.
