What are the fastest datetime functions to use in C plus plus
Posted on 2009-02-21
Im designing a program that uses a date loop and a time loop,. huge iteration overhead that will be eventually clustered out. My original program has a separate date and then a time loop, time inside date, and Im thinking of integrating both of them them into one loop, The original program used a bespoke algorihm for calculating date and basically a int to keep track of time.
Heres the question, whats the fastest c++ time structures algorithms etc to use heres a few ive read about to get an answer started:
Win 32 SYSTEMTIME / FILETIME and _LARGE_INTEGER ?
CTime and CTimeSpan?
I looked around for some new ideas in the visual studio 8 platform, I know C# uses a datetime structure.
Also How the hell do I get a plus sign to appear on this site, as in C plus plus, I see it now but when the post goes up it disappears so I jhave to use the word plus???
