Hello,
I want to measure the cpu time for a function.

Right now I'm using the function "now" as in:

edit2.text:=timetostr(now);

Obviously I need something more accurate.

Does anyone have any idea?

means


var
  start, stop, elapsed : Integer;
begin
  start := gettickcount;
  //call your function here
  stop := gettickcount;
  elapsed := stop-start;
  edit1.text := inttostr(elapsed) + ' ms'; //in milliseconds
end;

just from head,
typos possible
