Hello Anonymous Monk,
I think you are looking for How do I find difference between two timestamps?.
Update: Thanks to the idea of the fellow Monk haukex that you might want to measure the process time of your script between two points. In this case you can use Time::HiRes. If this is the case it can give you accuracy down to microseconds.
Sample of code below:
use feature 'say';
use Time::HiRes qw(gettimeofday tv_interval);
# measure elapsed time
say 'Start counting';
my $t0 = [gettimeofday];
# do bunch of stuff here
say 'I am doing my things here that I want to know the process time...
my $t1 = [gettimeofday];
say 'Finished counting';
print Dumper $t0;
print Dumper $t1;
my $t0_t1 = tv_interval $t0, $t1;
my $elapsed = tv_interval ($t0, [gettimeofday]);
# $elapsed = tv_interval ($t0); # equivalent code
$ perl test.pl
I am doing my things here that I want to know the process time...
$VAR1 = [
$VAR1 = [
Hope this helps, BR.
