How do you calculate program run time in python?


Answers:


You might want to take a look at the timeit module:

http://docs.python.org/library/timeit.html

or the profile module:

There are some additionally some nice tutorials here:

And the time module also might come in handy, although I prefer the later two recommendations for benchmarking and profiling code performance:
