Thanks for that, most instructive! So the conclusion appears to be that
sysconf(_SC_CLK_TCK) is doing the wrong thing by returning a constant then ?
Thanks, I'll submit a pr about it. Do you mind if I attach your email to
it to show the follow through of the code ? I havent looked at it myself in
that much depth.
