Talk:cpp/chrono/high resolution clock

From cppreference.com
bool is_steady
[static]
true if the time between ticks is constant and calls to now return values that increase monotonically
(public static member constant)

"the time between ticks is constant". Isn't this always true because member type period already specifies seconds per tick?

What was meant time span between ticks might be very large or even negative in case the clock is adjusted when is_steady == false. I'll try to describe it in a more understandable way. P12 08:03, 22 December 2012 (PST)
so member type period may fail to represent the real value of seconds per tick, if is_steady == false? 222.205.6.190 18:24, 22 December 2012 (PST)
Yes. P12 18:28, 22 December 2012 (PST)
