I'd have to speak to a matey of mine, but I can tell you that it is a pain to get SGI's to give accurate frames/sec counts.
er, no. sgi's are eaaaaaaaaasy to code timers for.
i'll try and hunt down my code, or the man page on it...
it was one of the things i was looking for, but i need to also find the accurate timer, but on sgis, check out
which is a profiling library database.
(it comes on the IRIX6.5 distribution, but you need to have it installed, of course)
a-HA! here it is. get the man pages on timers (for a discussion of SGI clocks) and on syssgi for the ultimate timer http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/wink.gif True, it's a tiny bit more involved than a gettimeofday, but it is a very cool high resolution timer. you can also use syssgi to toggle the leds on the front box! (fun for ALL the family http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif it includes src, btw
