//  timer  -------------------------------------------------------------------//

//  A timer object measures elapsed time.

//  It is recommended that implementations measure wall clock rather than CPU
//  time since the intended use is performance measurement on systems where
//  total elapsed time is more important than just process or CPU time.

//  Warnings: The maximum measurable elapsed time may well be only 596.5+ hours
//  due to implementation limitations.  The accuracy of timings depends on the
//  accuracy of timing information provided by the underlying platform, and
//  this varies a great deal from platform to platform.

Having earned an MCAD, he teeters on the brink of transitioning from C++ to C#, unsure of which language to jump to. Fortunately, he also knows how to use .NET interop to merge code between the two languages (which means he won't have to make the choice anytime soon).
 
His interests (apart from programming) are walking, football (the real one!), philosophy, history, retro-gaming, strategy gaming, and any good game in general.
 
He maintains a website / blog / FAQ / junk at shexec32.serveftp.net, where he places the best answers he's written to the questions you've asked. If you can find him, maybe you can hire Mr. Shah to help you with anything C++[/CLI]/C#/.NET related Smile | :) .
