    It won't be any more accurate than the Time::HiRes::nanosleep function.

    I've been sitting here for an hour hoping that our esteemed brother would share with us what he's using single microsecond granularity for. How am I supposed to get any sleep tonight with this mystery unresolved? ;)


      True. I won't get a nanosecond of sleep until this mystery is resolved.
