Time::Duration provides functions for expressing time spans in rounded
or exact terms. So while
say duration_exact(86399);
will correctly give "23 hours, 59 minutes, and 59 seconds",
say ago(86399);
will output the rounded time span as "1 day ago".
The provided functions are duration(), ago(), from_now(), later() and
earlier(), along with their *_exact counterparts.  The precision used
for rounding can be specified, and version 1.10 added a millisecond
