GeneralMultithreading and timing with Windows API PinmemberNinimi28-Jun-12 17:12 
Hi,
 
Being a newbie in multithreading concept, I'd like to better understand why multithreading and/or multi-cores CPU could be problematic while determining timing in a program. Suppose, for example, that I want to know the elapsed time since a user has clicked with a mouse on the PC screen. I understand that there should be an event handler, but I read on some websites that computing such a deltatime could be very tricky, especially for multithreading and/or multi-cores PC.
 
On the other hand, some people warns about using GetPerformanceCounter because of the multithreading and/or multi-cores...
 
I would like to understand why and the concepts behind ?
 
Thank you a lot,
Niaina
