Given enough time, yes (never hacked that one, but it seems that only
winsup/cygwin/times.cc would need to be modified).. anyway of course I'm one of
the few that actually would like to have this feature so I guess there's no big
Of course the number reported by PerformanceTimer has an unknown offset with
system time (it appears to start at 0 at program start, but that's not clearly
specified) so I would have calculate an initial "offset" in the "old" way... this
would give 3-4 microsecond precision on "deltas" but an initial uncertainty of
the usual 15 milliseconds or so.
I guess that it's better that having that uncertainty between ANY two
measurations... but if someone has some other idea.. please suggest =)

Sorry but english knowledge doesn't let me understand "assignment on file", could
you explain it to me with other words?

A note for everyone: that implementation was taken from tim Prince's message on
lmbench and of course lacked any syncronization with real time as was used only
