Re: smallest unit of time

there are tons and tons of time related functions. see the time man pages
for time for a start. look in the see also section for time.

The unit of time in Linux is a jiffy (pl. jiffies)as far as I know. You may
have to consult Linux Device Drivers by Alessandro rubini for that.
