** File:          prinrval.h
** Description:   API to interval timing functions of NSPR.
**
**
** NSPR provides interval times that are independent of network time
** of day values. Interval times are (in theory) accurate regardless
** of host processing requirements and also very cheap to acquire. It
** is expected that getting an interval time while in a synchronized
** function (holding one's lock).

** DEFINES:     PR_INTERVAL_MIN

** DESCRIPTION:
**  These two constants define the range (in ticks / second) of the
**  platform dependent type, PRIntervalTime. These constants bound both
**  the period and the resolution of a PRIntervalTime.

** DESCRIPTION:
**  Two reserved constants are defined in the PRIntervalTime namespace.

** FUNCTION:    PR_IntervalNow
** DESCRIPTION:
**  Return the value of NSPR's free running interval timer. That timer
**  can be used to establish epochs and determine intervals (be computing

** INPUTS:      void
** OUTPUTS:     void
** RETURN:      PRIntervalTime
**  
** SIDE EFFECTS:
**  None
** RESTRICTIONS:
**  The units of PRIntervalTime are platform dependent. They are chosen
**  such that they are appropriate for the host OS, yet provide sufficient
**  resolution and period to be useful to clients.
