> Hi, I had a question that might be related; when the CPU is idle, should we increment in ticks of one, or just skip straight to the next instruction? For longer commands (like sleep = 1000000usecs) my program seems to take a very long time, especially versus the sample solution.
Depends on your implementation - you may increment/advance the time by any amount, though just be careful not to 'miss' any events if you advance it along way into the future. If you ever find a need for time to go backwards, it strongly suggest that your approach is wrong or inelegant.
