in reply to Estimating computation time perl scripts

Thank you everyone for the quick comments,... I'm not looking to for a very precise measure of the computation time .. Jus a type of guess that can give the user a fair idea abt it .. As for the code, its really long, so i'll jus explain the process flow

The program has a lot of subroutines and performs comprehensive checks on multiple files simultaneously ( about 6 files in all .. total size : approx 9 MB .... ) I knw how to program the progress bar., its jus the count (total time )thats a bit of a worry ... Help appreciated..!!

    get info about system (like disk speed, disk buffer size ), multiply by size of files, then guess

    Most checks on 9MB of files should be over fast enough not to need a progress bar nowadays.....

      Wish it was so quick .. The entire process takes about a 2-3 mins ... Hence the request.... Thanks again .:)

        No problem - however, your question to PerlMonks perhaps ought to have asked how to optimise whatever you're doing to the files....I'd be rather suspicious if anything took 2-3 mins on such a small amount of data nowadays..
