Simple Arithmetic Program (help pls)
I have a simple mathematical process i would like to automate with a program of some sort. Maybe even a basic shell script. I would like to have the user specify (or be prompted for) a few variables "A" "B" "C" and "M". Where A,B, and C are values in units of time aka HMS (hh.mmss). And M is in units of MiB.
A+B+C=TT (in HMS, whats the syntax for adding HMS units in the shell?)
A HMS-> / TT HMS-> = AX (unitless factor)
Where "HMS->" (aka HMS OUT) means to convert HMS to a decimal number (unitless).
And repeat for B and C, resulting in AX,BX, and CX.
AX*M=AS (in MiB)
BX*M=BS (in MiB)
CX*M=CS (in MiB)
The desired output would be the numerical values of AS,BS, and CS.
I know theres probably many ways to do this, any suggestions would be helpful. To keep it simple i would prefer a simple bash script if possible.
