st: "Hours" in Stata

Hi everyone,

I can't seem to find an answer to this in the Stata manual (version
11) so hopefully someone can help me with it. I have two time
variables in a dataset (%tc format), and I want to find out the
difference in them measured in hours. For example

04nov2009 17:01:54


05nov2009 16:26:33

The hh() function only extracts the "hour" portion. It helps, but not
easy to use in this case (when more than one day is involved). I tried
subtracting them directly, but I'm not sure what's the "unit" for %tc
