Subject Re: Timer Question
Date Tue, 03 Sep 2002 20:55:57 GMT
Constant timer creates a delay between each sample that is the same for all 

Gaussian random creates a delay that will average X milliseconds, but in such a 
way as to create a bell-shaped distribution around that average.  The average is 
the sum of the offset (minimum delay) and the deviation (the range of values).

Uniform random timer creates a uniform distribution around the average.

the difference between the timer options? The documentation is pretty sparse. Any examples
of which to use in what situation would be helpful. I have researched the faq, help and gone
through google but 
not much has been explained. Any help would be appreciated.
