|Title||On Windows, pause times are measured using clock(), which is wall-clock time|
|Assigned user||Gareth Rees|
|Description||On Windows, the clock() library function is non-standard, and returns the wall-clock time since the start of the process. I also hear rumours that it does not update smoothly, and so may not be a suitably fine-grained clock.|
|Analysis||1. Investigate higher resolution virtual time clocks that are cheap to obtain.|
2. Implement clockan.c and clockw3.c containing the relevant clock calls, and add this to the porting guide.
DL's claims about clock resolution.
