No, I haven't.

This module originates codes that I made when I used C++ (more than 5 
years ago).
I know that Tango is having similar class. But I have never, not once, 
used Tango's StopWatch.
It of Tango loses accuracy clearly as far as I look API. It of Tango 
seems to lose accuracy as far as I look APIs.

FYI, I named this class Timer at first.
But "timer" is strong in an impression called a tool generating a 
specific event after a certain period of time for me. It resembles the 
function that an alarm clock sounds alarm.
Additionally, my StopWatch imitates real stopwatch.
Constructor/reset() = Push initialize button
start() = Push start button
stop() = Push pause button(toggle)
peek() = Watch the display and read numbers
start() = Push pause button(toggle)
peek() = Peek the display in real time
