Re: Time counter?
~ : [I am porting some libraries that works under Windows NT,
~ : Solaris, HPUX und AIX to OpenBSD]
~ : I am looking for a function that returns a timer value that
~ : won't be altered by 'settimeofday'. The problem is that I
~ : want to block exactly ten seconds basically doing a poll
~ : in a loop. But if the system clock is set back a day this loop
~ : won't return for 24h (using the function 'gettimeofday').
We also have times(3) though it probably not really what you want.
have alook on getitimer(2), also probably microtime(9) could be helpful
though I never used it.
