Hello, I just started to do some more advanced stuff under Linux, and maybe someone could point me in right direction. What I want is to have a high resolution timer. Right now I'm using "ftime" calls to calculate time, but it gives me resolution to 1/1000 sec. Does someone know a way to have higher resolution timer under Linux? Regards...

I know the gstreamer library internally works on nanoseconds, so at least it's possible. I don't know of any standard library that supplies these high resolution timers though.

The gettimeofday function will give you a timeval structure. That structure can be accurate down to microseconds, but i am not sure if gettimeofday is that accurate.
