in thread Get a function argument's name

Sure. I'm writing a little function to run another function on a given set of arguments and time how long it takes. Looks like so:
sub run_and_time(&@) { use Time::HiRes; my $func = shift; my $funcName = [some bit of code to get $func's name] my $start_time = [gettimeofday]; my @retlist = &{$func}(@_); print "Time to run $funcName: ", tv_interval($start_time), "\n"; }
So I need some way to get $funcName. Does that clarify things?

    Er, is there something wrong with Benchmark? Specifically: "timethis - run a chunk of code several times". Or maybe "timethese - run several chunks of code several times".
