Detailed Description

Elapsed Time Object.

Nigel Stewart, RMIT (
The precision of this object is limited to the ANSI C macro CLOCKS_PER_SEC
The timer object can be used for measuring elapsed time between events. The timer starts from the time the object is created, and is reset to zero when Timer::start() is called.

When an output stream is passed to the constructor, the elapsed time will be output when the timer is destroyed.
