I often discover this in ~ the bottom the pages.

Page produced in 0.00013899803161621

Sometimes, ns come across

Page generated in 9.0122222900391E-5

What does the time mean?

I tried browsing Wikipedia for E and also starrkingschool.nets but found the e starrkingschool.netematical constant. My guess is E was standing for Exponential and also -5 is the strength it is elevated to. And the shown time is a really tiny number. Yet that doesn"t make sense when compared to the various other time in the question. 0.00013899803161621 is bigger than 9.0122222900391E-5.

I have constantly taken the E or e to average "exponent of 10." This construction parses in all modern computing languages together an IEEE754 dual or solitary precision number.
