Add the ability to display H:MM:SS.mmm for last command runtime to the PROMPT.

i.e. 0:13:51.037 is much more user friendly compared to 831.037

With the help of the ISO8601 plugin (thanks Charles)
Code:
set prompt=%%@dectotime[%%@eval[$=/86400],256]
doesn't work.

Would this be of use?
I'll give it a try.

Why not just $T ?
I want the duration of the last run command, not the current time of day.

Poor man's version:
That's much easier than my current pre_exec and prompt where I use your 4UTILS plugin.
Code:
0:00:00.345
[C:\BIN\JPSoft\TCCLE14]
11:35:04 $ alias PRE_EXEC
set STARTTIME=%@CLOCK[0]

0:00:00.001
[C:\BIN\JPSoft\TCCLE14]
11:35:53 $ set prompt
$e[35;2m%@TCONVERT[%@eval[(%@CLOCK[0]-%[STARTTIME])/1000]]$e[0m$_$e[32;2m[$P]$_$e[35;1m$t$s$$$e[0m$s
I've got a working prompt, just thought I'd offer up the suggestion for the next version of TCC.

I have done this in quite a few ways ... PRE_EXEC/PROMPT and PRE_EXEC/POST_EXEC/PROMPT (with both TCC's TIMER/@TIMER and my own CLOCK/@CLOCK) ... also with Charles's _CMDTIME in the prompt and with the built-in $=. All of them seem to have a built-in bias of about .05 second. See this below where I have $= in my prompt. TIMER gives .001 while %= gives .052.

Code:
0.052 v:\> timer & timer
Timer 1 on: 11:43:42
Timer 1 off: 11:43:42  Elapsed: 0:00:00.001

0.052 v:\>
Here's the same with Charles's %_CMDTIME in my prompt.

Code:
0:00:00.062 v:\> timer & timer
Timer 1 on: 11:46:09
Timer 1 off: 11:46:09  Elapsed: 0:00:00.001

0:00:00.051 v:\>
Does anyone have an idea why that happens?
