Returns the number of hundredths of a second since midnight.
// Define random x matrix x = rndu(1000, 1000); // Starting time tStart = hsec; // Multiply x*x y = x*x; // Calculate time elapsed tTotal = hsec-tStart;
In this example,
hsec() is used to time a 1000x1000 multiplication in GAUSS. A 1000x1000 matrix,
x, is created, and the current time, in hundredths of a
second since midnight, is stored in the variable tStart.
Then the multiplication is carried out. Finally, tStart
is subtracted from
hsec() to give the time difference
which is assigned to tTotal.
