Hey there!

This is kind of a silly question, but do you guys remember how to print

Well, as mydur is some amount of time we can simply divide it by "a second",
It's that simple :-).

<<< mydur / 1.0::second, "seconds" >>>;

I put the 1.0 there to make sure we don't get that weird integer math
rounding business, I don't think we actually need that but i'm not on a
chucking computer right now so i can't test it.

Anyway, using this logic you can also express it in days or bars or beats
(asuming you define those last two) or whatever, as long as it's some sort
of time. the result will be a flaot without a unit, as per highschool

Happy ChucKing!
