     CALL ETime(TArray, Result)


Result: REAL(KIND=1); scalar; INTENT(OUT).

Intrinsic groups: unix.


Return the number of seconds of runtime since the start of the process's execution in Result, and the user and system components of this in `TArray(1)' and `TArray(2)' respectively. The value of Result is equal to `TArray(1) + TArray(2)'.

On some systems, the underlying timings are represented using types with sufficiently small limits that overflows (wraparounds) are possible, such as 32-bit types. Therefore, the values returned by this intrinsic might be, or become, negative, or numerically less than previous values, during a single run of the compiled program.

Some non-GNU implementations of Fortran provide this intrinsic as only a function, not as a subroutine.
