[PD] counting elapsed samples

Hi all,

I'm trying to resize an array after doing a tabwrite~ to it, like 
soundfiler can automatically. This seems to me to be a trivial thing to 
do, but I can't figure out how to get the number of elapsed samples. I 
considered using a [timer], but last time I used that it was extremely 
innaccurate, especially with high system loads.

Would a combination of [realtime] and [samplerate~] be accurate? I guess 
I shy away from deducing the number of elapsed samples, as I'd rather 
get the true number somehow--but this is the only way I can figure it 
out so far. Any tips?

Thanks much,

Ian Smith-Heisters
