I'm not arguing with you, the problem I have is that under Win32 the
resolution offered by the clock() function is awfully low - far too low to
be useful for measuring CPU time IMO. That leaves either using rdtsc
(which isn't universally available), or using the performance counters, if
anyone has a means of reliably measuring CPU/process time under Win32 then
I'd love to hear of it.
