controllable elapsed timer

I have looked and posted this question in many different locations without success. I need a simple applescript that shows a running time in hours minutes and seconds. That part is fairly easy. The hard part…

I need to be able to control the applescript timer from another program that can issue applescript commands (filemaker pro 9). I want to be able to tell the applescript timer to pause, resume, stop.

It may be that you can not do this with applescript

any help would be great as I am pulling my hair out trying to figure this out.

What’s about this?
