Ah. Did you not expect a fractional part? That's the whole point of the "long" variation.

Wel AxWald mentioned
9.6/ 64bit: They show no fractional part at all
in Windows 10. That why I wanted to test it myself.

Ha! :idea: I get it now. So there is indeed cross-platform parity for "the long milliseconds". Thanks.

I'm not sure that "the long milliseconds" returns anything of any value. For example, whenever it shows a fractional part to me, the fraction always has this value: ".000244" .

What OS? I'm guessing Windows, where I would pretty much guarantee it not to work, given the system calls that are being made.
