DTime Intrinsic (subroutine)

     CALL DTime(TArray, Result)


Result: REAL(KIND=1); scalar; INTENT(OUT).

Intrinsic groups: unix.


Initially, return the number of seconds of runtime since the start of the process's execution in Result, and the user and system components of this in TArray(1) and TArray(2) respectively. The value of Result is equal to TArray(1) + TArray(2).

Subsequent invocations of DTIME() set values based on accumulations since the previous invocation.

On some systems, the underlying timings are represented using types with sufficiently small limits that overflows (wraparounds) are possible, such as 32-bit types. Therefore, the values returned by this intrinsic might be, or become, negative, or numerically less than previous values, during a single run of the compiled program.

Some non-GNU implementations of Fortran provide this intrinsic as only a function, not as a subroutine.
