|elapsed time and system command|
Hi, System p4 2.53 ghz 2 gig rdram xp pro GP/PARI CALCULATOR Version 2.2.12 (beta) i686 running cygwin (ix86 kernel) 32-bit version compiled: Jan 3 2006, gcc-3.4.1 (cygming special) (readline v5.0 enabled, extended help available)The timing functions # and ## do not account for the time taken by calls to external objects.
For example, (01:06) gp > # timer = 1 (on) (01:05) gp > t(n) = for(x=1,n,write("testtimer.txt","12345678901")) (01:07) gp > t(100000) time = 10,891 ms. (01:08) gp > ## *** last result computed in 10,891 ms. Actually took 50 sec. This has been the case for some time and applies to system commands also.BTW, the [Delete] key now deletes as opposed to producing the tilde ~. I downloaded the
latest cygwin. Perhaps that was the reasson. Cino
