The following code is a bit more complex. Sorry. But it produced output reflecting the amount of seconds. If something runs short, it says 3 seconds
. If something takes longer, it says 1 hour, 3 seconds
. If it takes even longer, the script can say 1 year, 3 monhts, 12 weeks, 4 days, 1 hour, 3 minutes, 20 seconds
The code is implemented as a runtime tracker.
$t0 = time;
my $d = time() - $t0;
my @int = (
[ 'second', 1 ],
[ 'minute', 60 ],
[ 'hour', 60*60 ],
[ 'day', 60*60*24 ],
[ 'week', 60*60*24*7 ],
[ 'month', 60*60*24*30.5 ],
[ 'year', 60*60*24*30.5*12 ]
my $i = $#int;
while ( ($i>=0) && ($d) )
if ($d / $int[$i] ->  >= 1)
push @r, sprintf "%d %s%s",
$d / $int[$i] -> ,
( sprintf "%d", $d / $int[$i] ->  ) > 1
$d %= $int[$i] -> ;
my $runtime = join ", ", @r if @r;
warn sprintf "RUNTIME %s\n", $runtime;
my $runTime = rand( 10 );
printf "Runtime is %d\n", $runTime;
sleep( $runTime );
