Convert timespan to verbose description

Hi,

I always see RoR pages showing the elapsed time like that

‘Published 3 days, 23 hour and 5 minutes ago’
‘Published less than 3 minutes ago’

I guess this conversion can be done using a Rails function, however I
can’t find it.

Does somebody know its name??

Thanks a lot
Peter

The functions that do this are distance_of_time_in_words and
distance_of_time_in_words_to_now:
