I was just wondering if there was some way, using maybe an ASM program, a Flash app, or an emulator, to measure Basic timings in clock cycles? Since Basic commands are written in ASM, I don't see any reason why measuring code timings wouldn't be possible. Of course, the exact time in clock cycles will certainly vary for Basic commands, but probably not too much to make the timings useless. If this were possible, it seems to me like this would be the best way to measure code timings in Basic, instead of counting the pixels passing through the activity indicator.
Does anyone have an input on the feasibility of this idea?
