TUI 'if' statement depending on Total Wallclock time?
I need to be able to write a data file using TUI after a certain wallclock time has passed. I believe 'if' statements in TUI are possible As discussed here, but I don't know how to get the total-wallclock time in this form from TUI.

I tried /paralell/timer/usage which does print the total time but only at the end:

PHP Code:

  Average wall

-step wall-clock time per iteration:            0.000 sec (2.1%)

Total wall-clock time:                              3.506 sec 

Or I can generate the cpu time with

PHP Code:

/paralell/timer (solver-cpu-time

But cannot find a similar command for the total time. The only way I can think to do this is to at certain intervals, write the usage summary to a text file. Then in a different linux script, write a file (kill.txt) when the time is a above a certain threshold. Then have an if statement in my TUI which writes the data file when (kill.txt) exists which sounds just awful and dont know if the TUI even supports that.

Can someone suggest a way to write a data file after a certain wall clock time?

using scheme language you can read/write files and have whole functionality of TUI
