In search of a DB2 time function

I want to find the difference of time in terms of minutes. My requirement has two fields with a length of 6.0. How would I go about this?
There's no DB2 function to do this directly. You'd have to combine a couple of functions something like:
HOUR(ENDING -STARTING )*60 + MINUTE(ENDING -STARTING )
