Clocks, Timers, and Getting a Kick Every So Often

It's time to take a look at everything related to time in the QNX Neutrino RTOS. We'll see how and why you'd use timers and the theory behind them. Then we'll take a look at getting and setting the realtime clock.

Note: This chapter uses a ticksize of 10 ms, but QNX Neutrino now uses a 1 ms ticksize by default on most systems. This doesn't affect the substance of the issues being discussed.
