Can We Do Aritmetic With the Result of TimerInit()

2 posts in this topic

The result of TImerInit() is supposed to be millisecond. So i guess it is possible to add/minus value to it. But is this property guaranteed by the development team? Would it be changed in the future to some internal format?

TimerInit() returns the number of milliseconds from last system boot. TimerDiff() does the same but substracts the previous amount. Voila! A reliable metric to measure time difference. I don't see why this would change.

Heres an example:

$milliseconds = TimerDiff(0)
$years = Int($milliseconds / 31536000000)
$remainMS = Mod($milliseconds, 31536000000)
$days = Int($remainMS / 86400000)
$remainMS = Mod($milliseconds, 86400000)
$hours = Int($remainMS / 3600000)
$remainMS = Mod($milliseconds, 3600000)
$minutes = Int($remainMS / 60000)
$remainMS = Mod($milliseconds, 60000)
$seconds = Int($remainMS / 1000)
$remainMS = Mod($milliseconds, 1000)

MsgBox(0,"Time since last boot","Years: " & $years & @CRLF & "Days: " & $days & @CRLF & "Hours: " & $hours & @CRLF & "Minutes: " & $minutes & @CRLF & "Seconds: " & $seconds & @CRLF & "Milliseconds: " & Int($remainMS))
