Ticket #985 (new todo)
proper Configure.pl-time check for hires timers
|Reported by:||dukeleto||Owned by:||cotto|
Currently parrot uses clock_gettime() unless the platform is darwin, in which it uses gettimeofday(). Any other esoteric platform that does not have clock_gettime() will currently not build on parrot.
A proper check for each function should be done at Configure.pl-time for these. Devel::NYTProf2 has already solved most of these issues, we should emulate that.
