/// Typedef for a timer based on the steady clock.
 * This typedef uses the C++11 @c &lt;chrono&gt; standard library facility, if
 * available. Otherwise, it may use the Boost.Chrono library. To explicitly
 * utilise Boost.Chrono, use the basic_waitable_timer template directly:
 * @code
 * typedef basic_waitable_timer<boost::chrono::steady_clock> timer;
 * @endcode
typedef basic_waitable_timer<chrono::steady_clock> steady_timer;
