my $num_of_seconds = 172870;
my $dd = int($num_of_seconds / 86400);
my $hh = int(int(($num_of_seconds % 86400)) / 3600);
my $mm = int(int(($num_of_seconds % 86400) % 3600) /60);
my $ss = int(int(($num_of_seconds % 86400) % 3600) %60);

#the simplest way to extend it beyond 364 days may be to add another variable.
