TitleOn Windows, pause times are measured using clock(), which is wall-clock time
Assigned userGareth Rees
DescriptionOn 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.
Analysis1. 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.
