# Purpose: Given any starting and ending date/time objects, it generates:      #
#        1) a vector with all the hours between the two dates, OR              #
#	 2) the amount of hours between the two date/time objects              #

# 'from'    : Character indicating the starting date/time object for computing the number of hours.
#             It MUST have the date/time format specified by 'date.fmt'
