>> and it cant seem to compile.

Maybe you could show some code, and explain how it doesn't compile, by posting the exact error messages, etc.

--------------------------
#include <sys/time.h>

gethrtime is a Solaris function, which is generally not available on Linux (and if it is, it's probably not exactly the same).

It could be that your Linux platform has it in another include file. You could to a grep in the include files to find out if one of them contains it, but I wouldn't count on it.

Consider using clock_gettime instead for Linux :
