convert time in seconds after midnight to a certain interval

6 views (last 30 days)
Given the time in seconds after midnight and an interval of what minutes it needs to be rounded to. So for example, if the output of like a datestr function gave 02:07 and my interval was 5 I would need it to be 02:05. How would I do this?

hi you need to make modulo(5) of the seconds
seconds_rounded = seconds - mod(seconds,5)

The script
%%
obj = duration( 0, 0, 2*3600+7*60 );
obj - mod( obj, minutes(5) )
outputs
ans =
duration
02:05:00
