[an error occurred while processing this directive] $TimeUnit

  • $TimeUnit gives the minimum time interval in seconds recorded on your computer system.
  • On many systems $TimeUnit is equal to 1/60.
  • $TimeUnit determines the minimum granularity of measurement in functions like Timing and Date.
  • In some functions the actual time granularity may be larger than $TimeUnit.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 2.13.3.
