Help : What's the real difference between the function CPUTIME and TIC,TOC???
Posted: Sep 23, 1996 4:15 PM

Hi,

I need to know what's the real difference between the function
CPUTIME and the combination between TIC,TOC?

When i run a function, it is always almost the same time
that is printed
or what MAthworks mean exactly by CPUTIME, the help given is
not very clear (that of the manual too). PArticularly the
it is not said that there's a difference between the two
function..
First i thought that we can compute with CPUTIME the effective
time needed by the CPU..

In other words, let us suppose that we have to compute
the elapsed time needed for <a_function>

> tic, <a_function>,t1 = toc

> t0=cputime;<a_function>, t2 = cputime-t;Are t1 and t2 ALWAYS equal??????
Any help will be appreciated,
S. Guetari
