Default Timing Options

Is there some way for prime95 to keep cumulative stats of how long the program has been running. Maybe something that would write total time run to results.txt everytime it makes a save file. I don't think there's an undocumented option for that, and I don't how to tinker with source code to make it do it. This would help me out so I could do my own statistics project on how much idle computer time is normally wasted. I know project has been done many times, but if I do it myself it gives me an excuse to run GIMPS on my school's computer lab. [drool] 30+ 1.8 GHZ P4's [/drool] I don't wanna force this on anyone, but it sure would help me out. Even if my school won't support me :( I'll still use it on my personal computers to test efficiency. If it seems too difficult or time consuming, mention it and I'm sure I can find a different way to turn GIMPS into a research project.

On UNIX - GNU/Linux you can get accumulated cpu-time for a process. I do not know about windows though

Taskmgr on NT/2k/XP can tell you how many CPU seconds since the process started. XP shows even more stats than the previous versions. :)

I think taskInfo does that as well for any windows version.
