This function is used to format a timecode string. The format string will define the separating characters between time fields. The placeholders h, m, s, f are used to indicate the hours, minutes, seconds and frames values.
The separators of the timecode string do not really matter as long as it is not a number, so it could be a dot, comma, slash etc.

Format String Examples…
h/m/s.f (note this is the format the Hog 4 uses)


a = FormatTimecode("", "h/m/s/f")

The variable a would be assigned the string 00/01/23/04.
