[Solved] Microtime confusion

Recommended Posts

Hest

I'm a little confused about microtime(), maybe I'm missing something and someone can explain what I'm doing wrong.

I have made a stopwatch that counts microtime, by extracting starttime with stoptime, but there is a problem. When comparing the stopwatch with a normal watch, the stopwatch runs faster all the time. Almost 1½ sec. faster every 5 sec.

How can I fix that or can I use another function to get the correct speed?

I don't think you will get that exact timing with AutoIt...

AutoIt can time things down to milliseconds with accuracy limited mainly by the quality of the RTC on your motherboard. There are some DLL calls that use 100 nanosecond ticks for their time base.

So the accuracy of that statement depends on your definition of "exact timing".
