Python Question

Basically I have the inverse of this problem: Python Time Seconds to h:m:s

I have a string in the format H:MM:SS (always 2 digits for minutes and seconds), and I need the integer number of seconds that it represents. How can I do this in python?

For example:

- "1:23:45" would produce an output of 5025
- "0:04:15" would produce an output of 255
- "0:00:25" would produce an output of 25

etc

Answer

```
def get_sec(time_str):
h, m, s = time_str.split(':')
return int(h) * 3600 + int(m) * 60 + int(s)
print get_sec('1:23:45')
print get_sec('0:04:15')
print get_sec('0:00:25')
```
