I'm writing some codes that need to sleep for a very short time, say 1 microsecond. I tried "Time-HiRes" and used "usleep" or "nanosleep". However, usleep and nanosleep actually sleep much longer than 1 microsecond. From the returned value of the function calls, they sleep about 1 milisecond(1000 microseconds) even though I specify the sleep interval to 1 microsecond. Here is my program. Any suggestions how I can force my Perl program to sleep about 1 microsecond? Thanks in advance.
use Time::HiRes qw(usleep nanosleep gettimeofday);
my @start = gettimeofday ();
my $sleep = usleep(1);
my @end = gettimeofday ();
