Hello dear all. i need a help where i'm try to calculate execution time for my program. seem i have a problem with how to set it up.

```
#include <iostream>
#include <time.h>
#include <sys/timeb.h>
typedef int tRow[10];
int N, i;
int x[100], xi[100]; /* The permutation and its inverse */
int dir[100];
using namespace std;
int count = 1;
void rotate(int *x, int N)
{
int temp, i;
temp = x[1];
for (i = 1; i < N ; i++)
x[i] = x[i+1];
x[N - 1] = temp;
}// end rotate()
void reverse(int *x, int N) {
for (int i=1; i<N-1; i++) {
int temp = x[i];
x[i] = x[N-i-1];
x[N-i-1] = temp;
}
return;
}// end reverse
void print()
{
int i;
for (i=1; i <= N; ++i)
cout << x[i] << "" ;
}
void trans( int x, int y )
{
printf("(%2d %2d)", x , y);
cout << endl;
}
void move( int j, int d )
{
int z;
trans( xi[j], xi[j]+d );
z = x[xi[j]+d];
x[xi[j]] = z;
x[xi[j]+d] = j;
xi[z] = xi[j];
xi[j] = xi[j]+d;
}
void starterlist (int *x, int start )
{
int i, j, fact=1;
if (start > N )
print();
else
{
starterlist( x, start+1 );
for (i=2; i<= start-1; ++i) // fix element 1,that's why start i=2.
{
move( start, dir[start] );
starterlist(x, start+1 );
count++ ; //counting the starter
}
dir[start] = -dir[start];
}
for(j=1;j<=N;j++)
fact = fact*j;
//cout<<endl;
//cout<<"count = "<<cout<<endl;
//cout<<"fact = "<<fact<<endl;
// if (count == (fact/(2*N)))
//exit(0);
}
int main ()
{
int y;
cout << "Enter the number of elements: " ;
cin>> N;
cout<< endl;
int ftime(struct timeb *tp);
struct timeb time_before,timeafter;
long total_time_taken;
ftime(&time_before);
for (i=1; i<=N; ++i)
{
dir[i] = -1;
x[i] = i;
xi[i] = i;
}
cout<<"Possible Starters are : " << endl;
starterlist ( x, 1 );
cout<< "\n";
cout<<"count = "<<count<<endl;
y=count/2;
cout<<"y = "<<y<<endl;
for (int i=1; i <= y; ++i)
cout << x[i] << "" ;
ftime(&time_after);
/*Calculate the time difference in milliseconds */
total_time_taken = (time_after.time - time_before.time) * 1000 +(time_after.millitm- time_before.millitm);
}
```

i use this syntax as follows:

```
int ftime(struct timeb *tp);
struct timeb time_before,timeafter;
long total_time_taken;
ftime(&time_before);
ftime(&time_after);
/*Calculate the time difference in milliseconds */
total_time_taken = (time_after.time - time_before.time) * 1000 +(time_after.millitm- time_before.millitm);
} // main()
```
