Powershell time within 2 minutes of listed

Hi,

I have a powershell script that I am comparing the two fields;
Get-QADGroup UGL-SM-Map.Shared-Full |ft ModificationDate, Description

ModificationDate                                            Description
----------------                                            -----------
13/09/2011 10:55:37 AM                                      13/09/2011 10:55:37 AM

ModificationDate                                            Description
----------------                                            -----------
13/09/2011 10:55:37 AM                                      13/09/2011 10:55:39 AM



I want to say if the date and time is -eq or within 2 minutes of each other then return true if not return false.

Help please :)

You can try something like this. You can probably clean up the code but should work for what you need if the data will stay the same in the description and modification attributes..



Function format-time{
Param($Time)
$Out = $time -replace "/", " "
$out = $out -replace ":", " "
$out = $out -split " "
$day = $out[0]
$Month = $out[1]
$Year = $out[2]
$Hour = $out[3]
$Minute = $out[4]
    If ($out[6] -eq "PM"){
        [int]$hour = [int]$hour + 12
    }
get-date "$month/$day/$year" -Month $month -hour $hour -minute $minute
} #end function format-time

$Group = Get-QADGroup UGL-SM-Map.Shared-Full 
If ((New-TimeSpan (Format-time $($group.ModificationDate)) (Format-time $($Group.Description))).minutes -le "2"){
"True"
}
ELse {
"False"
}
