[Haskell-cafe] Re: TimeDiff to Int?

Thanks, but that doesn't seem to work. I got an answer of -3. I tried it
again a minute later and it was still -3. I tried again a minute later and
it was -1. It's just after 9am here, so I have no idea what to make of those
I have settled on this code:
secondsSinceMidnight :: IO Int
secondsSinceMidnight = do
zonedTime <- getZonedTime
return $ floor $ toRational $ timeOfDayToTime $ localTimeOfDay $
