more info

remark

you have to configure this module

dependency

to measure time with a precision less than 1 second, perl (base) do not offer any standard answser.
So this module will try differents solutions :
  1. use if perl module Time::HirRes (recommended method)
  2. use of system calls (syscall with gettimeofday) : do not work everywhere
  3. at least, use time function, with a precision in seconds
All this to recommend you to install the Time::HirRes perl module
