#' Adaptive timer
#' 
#' Repeats timing expr until minSec is reached
#' 
#' 
#' @param expr Valid expression to be timed.
#' @param gcFirst Logical - should a garbage collection be performed
#' immediately before the timing?  Default is \code{TRUE}.
#' @param minSec number of seconds to repeat at least
#' @param envir the environment in which to evaluate \code{expr} (by default
#' the calling frame)
#' @return A object of class \code{"proc_time"}: see \code{\link{proc.time}}
#' for details.
