I would like to know if you can measure execution time in nanoseconds - I have the following source code, however the time is measured in milliseconds. Help If You May !

```
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <windows.h>
#define NUM_ITEMS 500000
void quickSort(int numbers[], int array_size);
void q_sort(int numbers[], int left, int right);
int numbers[NUM_ITEMS];
int main()
{
int i;
int con;
int k;
long te, ts;
//seed random number generator
srand(GetTickCount());
//fill array with random integers
for (k = 0; k < NUM_ITEMS; k++)
numbers[k] = rand();
ts = GetTickCount();
//perform quick sort on array
quickSort(numbers, NUM_ITEMS);
te = GetTickCount();
printf("Bubble sort of 5000 random integers took %d ms\n", te - ts);
getchar(); // wait
return 0;
}
void quickSort(int numbers[], int array_size)
{
q_sort(numbers, 0, array_size - 1);
}
void q_sort(int numbers[], int left, int right)
{
int pivot, l_hold, r_hold;
l_hold = left;
r_hold = right;
pivot = numbers;
while (left < right)
{
while ((numbers >= pivot) && (left < right))
right--;
if (left != right)
{
numbers = numbers;
left++;
}
while ((numbers <= pivot) && (left < right))
left++;
if (left != right)
{
numbers = numbers;
right--;
}
}
numbers = pivot;
pivot = left;
left = l_hold;
right = r_hold;
if (left < pivot)
q_sort(numbers, left, pivot-1);
if (right > pivot)
q_sort(numbers, pivot+1, right);
}
```
