How do I get time of a Python program's execution?
I have a command line program in Python that takes a while to finish. I want to know the exact time it takes to finish running.
I've looked at the
timeit module, but it seems it's only for small snippets of code. I want to time the whole program.
The simplest way in Python:
import time start_time = time.time() main() print("--- %s seconds ---" % (time.time() - start_time))
This assumes that your program takes at least a tenth of second to run.
--- 0.764891862869 seconds ---
