Returns the number of clock ticks since the start of the process, based on the function
clock(3) in the C standard library.
This intrinsic is not fully portable, such as to systems with 32-bit
INTEGER types but supporting times wider than 32 bits. Therefore, the values returned by this intrinsic might be, or become, negative, or numerically less than previous values, during a single run of the compiled program.
RESULT = MCLOCK()
The return value is a scalar of type
INTEGER(4), equal to the number of clock ticks since the start of the process, or
-1 if the system does not support
