Returns the Interval expressed as a Number of whole seconds within the current minute (ignoring whole minutes). Thus, if $MyInterval is 1 hour, 30 minutes and 15 seconds then:

$MyInterval.minute returns 15

Although date-time units are stored as milliseconds under the hood, Tinderbox does not return increments smaller than one second.

Older behaviour

Prior to v8.0.4 it returned not just the seconds element of the interval but the entire interval expressed as seconds. Thus, 30 minutes and 15 seconds returns 1815 and not 15.

If $MyInterval is 30 minutes and 15 seconds then:

$MyInterval.second returns 1815
