|This is a documentation subpage for Template:HOUR.|
It contains usage information, categories and other content that is not part of the original template page.
This template simply returns the integer hour on two digits (between 00 and 23) for the time in parameter.
- The time must be in the hh:mm format (between 00:00 and 23:60 or 24:00), or can be any valid numeric expression of a real number of hours (this computed numeric value is processed modulo 24).
- For compatibility with some time indications that use 24:00 or 23:60 on leap seconds, or for the end of day, this template return 24 only for those two specific values. This allows correct computing of julian day timestamps.
