Subject: improiving docs for useclocktime
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 658b
The description for the "useclocktime" option makes it sound useless and unimportant. Most software on modern computers is I/O bound, so this is actually a very important feature. I would argue that it should be the default, but it would at least be good to improve the docs about it. Here's my suggestion: useclocktime Uses real wall clock time instead of CPU time. With this setting, the profiler will measure time in units of actual microseconds. This is important if your program does any significant I/O operations, like database calls or file access, since the time spent waiting for these to finish will be ignored otherwise. [default: off]

Actually the docs are wrong. useclocktime is the default. The docs in the tim.bunce branch are fixed. p.s. I agree with you. I saw your blog post. I have a big one of my own in draft.
Thanks. Fixed for next release.
