High resolution clock.

This is a discussion on High resolution clock. within the Linux Programming forums, part of the Platform Specific Boards category; I was wondering if anyone had any high resolution clock resources laying around? API explenation and maybe some tutorial. Thanks....

    man gettimeofday

    Has a quite high resolution. Still not high enough for a MIDI timer, probably - look into ALSA for that.

    HPET is the best you can get in terms of resolution, but your mainboard has to have the chip (newer ones does in most cases)
