in thread How can I keep track of the execution time of a script?

This has several flaws. First, the tick count is not milliseconds. Second, that count could roll in the middle of your execution, yeilding a negative run time. (this happens roughly once a month) Also, it's OS dependant.

I asked Sarcasmo what OS this was for, and the answer is Linux.

    Yes, it *is* OS dependant, as I said on the first line of my reply. However you're wrong about the tick count, at least according to the Win32 manpage:
    Win32::GetTickCount() [CORE] Returns the number of milliseconds elapsed since the last system boot. Resolution is limited to system timer ticks (about 10 +ms on WinNT and 55ms on Win9X).
    Its resolution is limited, however it is in miliseconds.
