**Rexx time() function question**I know I can use the date() function to calculate and format a future
date ie.
today = date('Base')
futureday = today + 15
futuredate = date(, futureday, 'Base')
My question is, can I do something similar with the time() function?
I want to add some seconds to the number of seconds since midnight and
format the time.
now = time('Seconds')
futuresec = now + 150
futuretime = time(, futuresec, 'Seconds')
I get the following error
93 +++ futuretime = time(, futuresec, 'Seconds')

**GTM External Functions Date Time Questions**Hi all,
Thinking about extended DateTime functions for GTM programs.
First limitation seems to be that we have days and seconds but no
milliseconds in a $H variable.
This isn't particularly helpful for accurate timing of functions /
modules.
Would a GetDateTime function be useful that returned Horolog format in
[days],[second].[milliseconds]?
Would you want to do this in "current locale" and also in "UTC"? For
example: Log files, events recorded in UTC?
Would a string DateTime format of [Century][Year][Month][Day]T[Hour]:
[Min]:[Sec].[milliseconds] be useful ie: like...

**Itertools question: how to call a function n times?**I want to write a function that each time it gets called, it returns a
random choice of 1 to 5 words from a list of words.
I can write this easily using for loops and random.choice(wordlist) and
random.randint(1, 5).
But I want to know how to do this using itertools, since I don't like
manually doing stuff like:
phrase = list()
for i in random.randint(1, 5):
phrase.append(random.choice(wordlist))
It just seems slow.
All advice welcome.

**Easy question, please help to run a function n times**I am trying to run the function t= M/(R/n), where R is a random number generated between 15 and 25. What function do i use to run this simulation 10,000 times and calculate the mean and std error from 306.
This is what i have so far
M=74
n=88
No=306
R= RandomReal[{15,23}]
t= M/(R/n)
t = x; Do[t = M/(R/n), {10000}]
Everything is working for me except how to run the simulation 10,000 times
M = 74;
n = 88;

**Question on tools or functions for checking most time consuming part of code**Hello:
I have a Matlab code that takes long in the first time of running, but
less time in later executions. I don't know why that happened. The
code contains GUI and mathematical calculations, so I would like to
trace which part of the code cost most of the time and then check why
it costs more in the first time run. However, I only know use tic and
toc to do that, and it will be tedious to add them in all part of the
code.
Is there a tool or function for Matlab that can automatically trace
which part of the Matlab code is the most time consuming?
Any help will be appreciated.

You do not want to use Set here. with this code,
RandomReal[{15,23}] will evaluate and the result will be assigne
to R. All future references to R will use this value, not a new
random value. To get a new random value every time R is used

**question on function in a function**If I have a function A.m which will be excecuted 10 times.
In this function there is another function B.m How can I
just excecute B.m only during the first time A.m is

will not run.
Thank you for any help

One way to do this is to use a persistent variable in A.m:
function A(arg1)
persistent first_call
if isempty(first_call)
% call function B.m here
first_call = 0; % initialize so it will no longer be empty
end
% do rest of function A() here
end

**question about functions generating functions**Hi group,
I'm interested if there's another way than using eval in this
situation: a code has to be generated (and compiled) at run-time. Say,
to solve a sparse system of equations x=Ax+b using an iterative
algorithm I might have a specific function to compute Ax+b with A, b
hard-coded inside. I mean, not having a matrix A and a vector b
explicitely. If A, b were known at compile-time, we'd use macros. But
what if A, b have to be computed at run-time? I can construct nested
lists representing a lisp function to compute Ax+b and feed it to
eval.
My question, are there other techniqu...

**Question about real-time timing simulation**I am doing real-time image processing with VHDL. But I am not quite sure
