What is the precision (and accuracy) of time module on a Windows XP
threading module depends on time module so it's precision(and
accuracy) is up to time module's.
| for i in xrange(1000):
This sleeps for awhile, which means 0.001 sec is not ignored. On the
| for i in xrange(10000):
This returns right away. 0.0001 sec is ignored and lost in the air.
So can I tell the time.sleep's precision is 1ms? Any other way to
increase the precision? (Using busy waiting -- spinning loop -- is not
a good option, it makes over 90% cpu usage)
