The documentation for ASF seems confusing to me. There are volumes of details, but the more basic information seems to be obfuscated.
To test this premise, I looked to see how to get a sense of time and specifically a free running counter. It could be in ticks, microseconds, milliseconds or whatever.
In http://asf.atmel.com/docs Finding:
is relatively simple. But these are fine details.
Where is the basic get the time function?
It seems that everything is mired in the sort of myopic view of things.
Worse, the search engine needs an exact match.
So, asking for everything with sysclk, time or hz can produce a mind-numbing list or nothing.
Given the two extremes, a mind-numbing list is preferable. At least it can be sifted through.
Is there a better manual?
Any comments or suggestions?
