Timer is a shell command to time how long it takes to execute a command.

After the command returns, it prints the time spent by the command with a
precision up to 100 microsecond (0.0001s).

It could have measured the time down to 1 microsecond but even on a freshly
booted system the many interrupts taking place all the time may cause delays
resulting in fluctuations that make higher precision meaningless.

To keep the accuracy as high as possible, Timer first makes one test run
to find out how long it takes on your machine and then substracts that value
from the result.
The method is to simple to compensate for busy-looping applications running
in the background but it should serve its purpose on very slow hardware.
