I found two issues with the function, one of which I could fix :)

You need to reinitialize dh, dm, hrdec for the function to give the correct
result when called more than once in a tex file.


does the trick.

The other issue is that when the minute or hour values are equal, you
get a null result, no matter what the other parameter is. It seems there
is not handling for the minutes being equal in the code, so I am trying to
make this fly, atm.

Thanks again,
