NAME

P5times - Implement Perl's times() built-in

SYNOPSIS

use P5times; # exports times()

($user,$system,$cuser,$csystem) = times;

$user = times(Scalar);

DESCRIPTION

This module tries to mimic the behaviour of the times function of Perl as closely as possible.

ORIGINAL PERL DOCUMENTATION

times   Returns a four-element list giving the user and system times in
        seconds for this process and any exited children of this process.

            ($user,$system,$cuser,$csystem) = times;

        In scalar context, "times" returns $user.

        Children's times are only included for terminated children.

        Portability issues: "times" in perlport.

PORTING CAVEATS

Child process information

There is currently no way to obtain the usage information of child processes.
