in thread Benchmark Wrapper

That was my first concept, but I'd like to somehow put it in a sub routine so I don't have to add so many lines to each report loop. Maybe I could just make the compare code a routine and call it within each report routine. Unless, of course, there's a better way.

    You could write a subroutine to put before and after the loop. Before the loop, you could have it return the time, and after the loop feed it that time and return the difference. That's the only way I can think of.

    my $name = 'Ben Kittrell'; $name=~s/^(.+)\s(.).+$/\L$1$2/g; my $nick = 'tha' . $name . 'sta';
      From the Benchmark docs for the new method:
      use Benchmark; $t0 = new Benchmark; # ... your code here ... $t1 = new Benchmark; $td = timediff($t1, $t0); print "the code took:",timestr($td),"\n";
      Update: A cheap example to help qball with his questions:
      use strict; use Benchmark; print "Starting..."; my $t0 = new Benchmark; # ... your code here ... sleep(3); my $t1 = new Benchmark; my $td = timediff($t1, $t0); print 'the code took:',timestr($td),"\n"; my $sec = timestr($td)+0; print "that's ",timestr($td)+0," seconds\n"; my $min = int($sec/60); $sec = $sec - $min*60; printf ("also known as %d:%02d", $min, $sec);

      I'd like to be able to assign to an luser
