Example 2:

   > write(time({ p=remez(sin(x),10,[-1;1]); write("The error is 2^(", log2(dirtyinfnorm(p-sin(x),[-1;1])), ")\n"); }), " s were spent\n");
   The error is 2^(log2(2.39601979446524486606649528289933482070294808074097e-11))
   6.2586596999999999999999999999999999988810894709438e-2 s were spent

Example 3:

   > t = time(bashexecute("sleep 10"));
   > write(~(t-10),"s of execution overhead.\n");
   1.0817670000000000000000000000000003679234935999155e-3s of execution overhead.

Example 4:

   > ratio := time(p=remez(sin(x),10,[-1;1]))/time(nop(10));
   > write("This ratio = ", ratio, " should somehow be independent of the type of machine.\n");
   This ratio = 2.1002859321376900732735524951679859113110863491513 should somehow be independent of the type of machine.
