How about something like this, given $seconds containing the number of
$secs = $seconds;
$hours = $secs / 3600;
$secs %= 3600;
$mins = $secs / 60;
$mins %= 60;
$out = sprintf ("%d hour%s, %d minute%s, %d second%s",
$hours, ($hours == 1 ? '' : 's'),
$mins, ($mins == 1 ? '' : 's'),
$secs, ($secs == 1 ? '' : 's'));
