Hardware independent time unit
MuPAD® notebooks will be removed in a future release. Use MATLAB® live scripts instead.
MATLAB live scripts support most MuPAD functionality, though there are some differences. For more information, see Convert MuPAD Notebooks to MATLAB Live Scripts.
prog::ntime() returns a time unit that represents
roughly the speed of the current machine for typical library
prog::ntime can be used to perform timing
tests of typical MuPAD® library programs on different machines.
prog::ntime uses a mix of different operations
to calculate the time factor.
One call to
prog::ntime takes about 1.5 seconds.
A real timing value must be divided by the value of
to get a machine independent timing value.
On this machine, a timing must be divided by the value of
then the timing is comparable with the timing of the same code on
another machine, also divided by the value of
the other machine:
Floating point number
