NAME

       mhz - calulate processor clock rate

SYNOPSIS

       mhz [-c]

DESCRIPTION

       mhz  calculates  the processor clock rate and megahertz.  It uses an unrolled, interlocked
       loop of adds or  shifts.   So  far,  superscalarness  has  been  defeated  on  the  tested
       processors (SuperSPARC, RIOS, Alpha).

OUTPUT

       Output format is either just the clock rate as a float (-c) or more verbose

       39.80 Mhz, 25 nanosec clock

       mhz is described more completely in ``mhz: Anatomy of a microbenchmark'' in Proceedings of
       1998 USENIX Annual Technical Conference , June 1998.
