Description


The TICKS command returns a real number measuring the time in microseconds since the calculator has been switched on.

Compatibility


TICKS is not fully equivalent to its userRPL counterpart.

In particular:

  • the usrRPL TICKS command returns a binary integer measuring elapsed time in ticks, whereas 8192 ticks = 1 second.
