Yes.Quote from: mxplxxxIt is interesting that most of the computer programs I have worked on, work without any reference to time.
I know nothing about computer programming, and it’s too late to start on that now. However, I’m intrigued by this statement. What does “without any reference to time” mean?
I suspect it cannot mean that you and/or the computer, and/or the relevant program complete any “work” in zero time.
Could it mean that the program completes its task without making any reference to time?
Many statements in programming are conditional like 'if', 'if-then'.Eg. sorting a list for all people named "Smith". Manipulation of data, operations that are independent of time. The operating system requires a clock but primarily for internal sequencing of operations. If you need time measurements for your purpose, it's available. If your work is air traffic control, then you need 'time' in your computer system.
