icetWallTime -- timer function
Retrieves the current time, in seconds. The returned values of
icetWallTime are only valid in relation to each other. That is, the
time may or may not have anything to do with the current date or time.
However, the difference of values between two calls to icetWallTime is
the elapsed time in seconds between the two calls. Thus, icetWallTime
is handy for determining the running time of various subprocesses.
icetWallTime is used internally for determining the values for the
state variables ICET_BUFFER_READ_TIME, ICET_BUFFER_WRITE_TIME,
ICET_INTERLACE_TIME, ICET_RENDER_TIME, and
The current time, in seconds.
