These routines provide some simple data management functionality.
In most cases, you will not need these routines.

The current timing results can be accessed using the routines in timing(3). The current timing results may be modified using save_median and save_minimum.

int             sizeof_result(int N)
returns the number of bytes to allocate for a result_t which contains
N results.
void   insertinit(result_t *r)
initializes the results array.
void   insertsort(uint64 u, uint64 n, result_t *r)
u and n into r. Results are sorted in decreasing order by u/n.
void     get_results(result_t *r)
get a copy of the current results.
void   set_results(result_t *r)
save a copy
r as the current results.
void   save_median()
sets the timing results to the median of the current results.
void   save_minimum()
sets the timing restuls to the minimum of the current results.

Results are sorted in ascending order, so the minimum value is at TRIES-1 and the maximum value is at 0.


Development of lmbench is continuing.
