ParseDuration parses a duration string. A duration string is a possibly signed sequence of decimal numbers, each with optional fraction and a unit suffix, such as "300ms", "-1.5h" or "2h45m". Valid time units are "ns", "us" (or "µs"), "ms", "s", "m", "h".

package main

import (

func main() {
	hours, _ := time.ParseDuration("10h")
	complex, _ := time.ParseDuration("1h10m10s")
	micro, _ := time.ParseDuration("1µs")
	// The package also accepts the incorrect but common prefix u for micro.
	micro2, _ := time.ParseDuration("1us")

	fmt.Printf("There are %.0f seconds in %v.\n", complex.Seconds(), complex)
	fmt.Printf("There are %d nanoseconds in %v.\n", micro.Nanoseconds(), micro)
	fmt.Printf("There are %6.2e seconds in %v.\n", micro2.Seconds(), micro)
