An implementation of time.monotonic() for Python 2 & < 3.3

Project description

This module provides a monotonic() function which returns the value (in fractional seconds) of a clock which never goes backwards.

On Python 3.3 or newer, monotonic will be an alias of time.monotonic from the standard library. On older versions, it will fall back to an equivalent implementation:

Linux, BSD, AIX clock_gettime(3)
Windows GetTickCount or GetTickCount64
OS X mach_absolute_time

If no suitable implementation exists for the current platform, attempting to import this module (or to import from it) will cause a RuntimeError exception to be raised.
