_rtc, RTC, IRTC, IRTC_RATE - Returns clock register contents
long long _rtc (void);
MIPSpro Fortran 77:
The _rtc, RTC, and IRTC intrinsic functions return a real-time clock
value. The value is expressed as the number of clock ticks. The
IRTC_RATE function returns the clock rate of the IRTC and RTC
Because _rtc is an intrinsic function, no externally visible library
function is available for it. The compiler generates inline code to
produce the result.
The names of these intrinsics cannot be passed as arguments.
When RTC is called as a subroutine, it accepts the following argument:
time The real-time clock value is returned as a REAL(KIND=8) value.
When IRTC is called as a subroutine, it accepts the following
itime The real-time clock value is returned as an INTEGER(KIND=8)
The RTC intrinsic function is outmoded. For information on outmoded
features and their preferred standard alternatives, see the MIPSpro
Fortran Language Reference Manual, Volume 3.
The use of RTC is not recommended. See the standard SYSTEM_CLOCK(3I)
intrinsic subroutine for the preferred alternative.
FORTRAN RETURN VALUES
RTC returns a 64-bit real value. IRTC returns a 64-bit integer value.
On IRIX systems, RTC returns the low-order 52 bits of the system clock
expressed as a REAL(KIND=8) value. IRTC returns the system clock as
an INTEGER(KIND=8) value. IRTC_RATE returns the number of IRTC and
RTC clock ticks per second in an INTEGER(KIND=8) value. IRTC is the
fastest nonwrapping clock.
