setitimer() and profiling (was RE: pause())

Bummer. I have a nagging suspicion I'm missing something in the NT
performance measurement interfaces, but they're (a) so ugly, and (b) so
numerous, that I can't figure it out. And that wouldn't help you, anyway,
since many of those don't exist under Win95.

Not yet. After gcc and gdb, our next priority is g77.

(By the way, the source for our NT/Alpha gcc implementation is available on
our web site, It's based on 2.7.2., though, and I
couldn't say when we'd be able to roll up to 2.8.1. Some enterprising person
is more than welcome to take our source and make the necessary changes to
2.8.1. We did a lot more than just make gcc generate NT/Alpha executables; a
buncha bugs got fixed while we were in there.)
