    Here is the first of two support libraries for my MidiSystem Library. This is a simple NanoTime wrapper.

    From the Android Docs:

    Download and unzip the file and copy the .jar and .xml files to your additional libraries folder.

    Dim NT As NanoTime
    How you use it depends on what you want to do with it, the value returned bears no relation to actual date/time, you can measure time passed between two calls to the timer with the most accurate clock available on your device. Example attached

    The accuracy will depend what else the device (not just your app) is doing while the timer is running. it is accurate enough to run a Midi sequencer without any noticeable delays.

    thank you so much : for your work and for the answer that conclude me i wasn't wrong with anything ,so wasn't a misuse of your library.
    i was thinkin' that Android wasn't perfect so that why isn't this test fully functional and so i gain some experience with stuff work inside the system or did not ,
    just to know the limits.
    (ps. i don't have Java skills i don't need to learn Java ,i also do not like Java ,i programming by several languages/script languages , .exe x86/ x64 windows also =nothing c,c++ microsoft,but other better compilers such purebasic and i like b4a,even is so primary)
    happy holidays ,happy new year!
