    I have been studying!

    I have been studying all night.

    Does this sentence indicates that I started studying some time ago and I am still in the process of studying till now(till the morning for example)?

    (...except that the question should have been 'Does this sentence indicate[no S]...', as RoseSpring probably knows. )
