One day, you boss walks up to you and tells you he needs to know the time. He still insists after you pointing at the clock directly above your head, and confesses he has a severe case of dyscalculia, which causes him to not even be able to see numbers on a clock. While you're still left wondering how someone unable to see numbers can run a company, he tells you to "do something about it", whatever that is.
Your task is now to create a program or function that, given an input time with hours and minutes (seconds are optional)(hours are 24-based), outputs a readable english sentence, that doesn't contain numbers.
It is not necessary to ouput the seconds.
08:45:15 should output
quarter to nine o'clock AM
00:00:00 > twelve night 12:00:00 > twelve noon 06:00:00 > six o'clock AM 18:00:00 > six o'clock PM 06:15:00 > quarter past six o'clock AM 18:45:00 > quarter to seven o'clock PM 11:30:00 > half past eleven o'clock AM 13:22:00 > twentytwo minutes past one o'clock PM 17:43:00 > seventeen minutes to six o'clock PM 00:09:00 > nine minutes past twelve o'clock AM
Outputting numbers can be both in the form of fortytwo or forty-two, whichever you like best. Standard loopholes are not allowed. Trailing newlines are allowed, but the sentence should be on 1 line.
Input can be in any format you want, for example
HH/MM/SS, or any variant without seconds, but you should make the input format clear in your answer. It's not needed to output
one minute instead of
for minutes ranging from 0 trough 30 (0 and 30 included) you should use
past, and for the others you should use
Because time is relative, shortest code in bytes wins.
forty-fivewhen the test cases clearly state
quarter toas the appropriate input format? (just change it to forty-two ;) ) Also, kolmogorov-complexity is not an appropriate tag. \$\endgroup\$
thirty, but that's not clear. Also, for future questions, I heartily recommend the Sandbox to work out the kinks before posting. \$\endgroup\$
