return amount of processor time used by a hoc call<br> only tested under LINUX (other UNIX systems may require changing #include -- see 'man clock') <br> // time("job()") will return processor time required to run job<br> // if tmstr is set then time() will run job listed there (default "run()")<br> // prints out date before and after as well as processor time so can assess loading<br> // if CPU is unloaded real elapsed time should equal processor time<br>

nrngui time.hoc  
// enter a simple procedure eg  
proc aa () { local ii  
  for ii=1,1e6 cos(ii)+log(ii)+exp(-ii)  
// and time it  
also provides:  
 now() // returns time in sec since 01/01/05  
 sleepfor(SEC) // sleeps for SEC secs
