for (int i = 0; i < 10000; i++);
timer.stop ();

seconds = timer.elapsed (out microseconds);
print ("1.1: %s, %lu\n", seconds.to_string (), microseconds);

// 1. measurement, part 2:
timer.@continue ();
for (int i = 0; i < 100000; i++);
timer.stop ();

seconds = timer.elapsed (out microseconds);
print ("1.2: %s, %lu\n", seconds.to_string (), microseconds);


// 2. measurement:
timer.reset ();
for (int i = 0; i < 10000; i++);
for (int i = 0; i < 100000; i++);
timer.stop ();

seconds = timer.elapsed (out microseconds);
print ("2.1: %s, %lu\n", seconds.to_string (), microseconds);
return 0;
