what do the values of "clocks_ticks = sysconf(_SC_CLK_TCK);" and

"CLOCK_PER_SEC" represent?

"CLOCKS_PER_SEC" (I guess you meant that) is the time the value

returned by the function clock() must be divided by to give a

time in seconds. What the non-standard-C (but POSIX) function

sysconf() returns for "_SC_CLK_TCK" (also not a standard-C but

POSIX defined value) is the time resolution the values returned

by the times() function are in (you may already have guessed

that this is also not a standard-C but POSIX function;-).They

typicaly are the not the same. And neither of them is meant to

be confused with the clock rate of the processor(s).
