=head1 NAME

Timer::Simple - Small, simple timer (stopwatch) object

=head1 VERSION

version 1.006


  use Timer::Simple ();
  my $t = Timer::Simple->new();
  print "something took: $t\n";

  # or take more control

  my $timer = Timer::Simple->new(start => 0, string => 'human');
  print "time so far: ", $t->elapsed, " seconds\n";
  print "time so far: ", $t->elapsed, " seconds\n";
  printf "whole process lasted %d hours %d minutes %f seconds\n", $t->hms;
    # or simply "whole process lasted $t\n" with 'string' => 'human'

  $timer->restart; # use the same object to time something else

  # you can use package functions to work with mutliple timers

  $timer1 = Timer::Simple->new;
  $timer2 = Timer::Simple->new;

  print "first process took $timer1, second process took: $timer2\n";
  print "in total took: " . Timer::Simple::format_hms($timer1 + $timer2);


This is a simple object to make timing an operation as easy as possible.

It uses L<Time::HiRes> if available (unless you tell it not to).

It stringifies to the elapsed time (see L</string>).

This module aims to be small and efficient
and do what is useful in most cases
while also being sufficiently customizable.

=head1 METHODS

=head2 new

Constructor;  Takes a hash or hashref of arguments:

=over 4

=item *

C<hires> - Boolean; Defaults to true;

Set this to false to not attempt to use L<Time::HiRes>
and just use L<time|perlfunc/time> instead.

=item *

C<hms> - Alternate C<sprintf> string used by L</hms>

=item *

C<start> - Boolean; Defaults to true;

Set this to false to skip the initial setting of the clock.
You must call L</start> explicitly if you disable this.

=item *

C<string> - The default format for L</string>. Defaults to C<'short'>;


=head2 elapsed

Returns the number of seconds elapsed since the clock was started.

This method is used as the object's value when used in numeric context:

  $total_elapsed = $timer1 + $timer2;

=head2 hms

  # list
  my @units = $timer->hms;

  sprintf("%d hours %minutes %f seconds", $timer->hms);

  # scalar
  print "took: " . $timer->hms . "\n"; # same as print "took :$timer\n";

  # alternate format
  $string = $timer->hms('%04d h %04d m %020.10f s');

Separates the elapsed time (seconds) into B<h>ours, B<m>inutes, and B<s>econds.

In list context returns a three-element list (hours, minutes, seconds).

In scalar context returns a string resulting from
(essentially C<sprintf($format, $h, $m, $s)>).
The default format is
C<00:00:00.000000> (C<%02d:%02d:%9.6f>) with L<Time::HiRes> or
C<00:00:00> (C<%02d:%02d:%02d>) without.
An alternate C<format> can be specified in L</new>
or can be passed as an argument to the method.

=head2 start

Initializes the timer to the current system time.

Aliased as C<restart>.

=head2 stop

Stop the timer.
This records the current system time in case you'd like to do more
processing (that you don't want timed) before reporting the elapsed time.

=head2 string

  print $timer->string($format);

  print "took: $timer";  # stringification equivalent to $timer->string()

Returns a string representation of the elapsed time.

The format can be passed as an argument.  If no format is provided
the value of C<string> (passed to L</new>) will be used.

The format can be the name of another method (which will be called),
a subroutine (coderef) which will be called like an object method,
or one of the following strings:

=over 4

=item *

C<short> - Total elapsed seconds followed by C<hms>: C<'123s (00:02:03)'>

=item *

C<rps> - Total elapsed seconds followed by requests per second: C<'4.743616s (0.211/s)'>

=item *

C<human> - Separate units spelled out: C<'6 hours 4 minutes 12 seconds'>

=item *

C<full> - Total elapsed seconds plus C<human>: C<'2 seconds (0 hours 0 minutes 2 seconds)'>


This is the method called when the object is stringified (using L<overload>).

=head2 time

Returns the current system time
using L<Time::HiRes/gettimeofday> or L<time|perlfunc/time>.


The following functions should not be necessary in most circumstances
but are provided for convenience to facilitate additional functionality.

They are not available for export (to avoid L<Exporter> overhead).
See L<Sub::Import> if you really want to import these methods.

=head2 HIRES

Indicates whether L<Time::HiRes> is available.

=head2 default_format_spec

  $spec            = default_format_spec();  # consults HIRES()
  $spec_whole      = default_format_spec(0); # false forces integer
  $spec_fractional = default_format_spec(1); # true  forces fraction

Returns an appropriate C<sprintf> format spec according to the provided boolean.
If true,  the spec forces fractional seconds (like C<'00:00:00.000000'>).
If false, the spec forces seconds to an integer (like C<'00:00:00'>).
If not specified the value of L</HIRES> will be used.

=head2 format_hms

  my $string = format_hms($hours, $minutes, $seconds);
  my $string = format_hms($seconds);

Format the provided hours, minutes, and seconds
into a string by guessing the best format.

If only seconds are provided
the value will be passed through L</separate_hms> first.

=head2 separate_hms

  my ($hours, $minutes, $seconds) = separate_hms($seconds);

Separate seconds into hours, minutes, and seconds.
Returns a list.

=for test_synopsis my ( $timer1, $timer2 );
no strict 'subs';

=head1 SEE ALSO

These are some other timers I found on CPAN
and how they differ from this module:

=over 4

=item *

L<Time::Elapse> - eccentric API to a tied scalar

=item *

L<Time::Progress> - Doesn't support L<Time::HiRes>

=item *

L<Time::Stopwatch> - tied scalar

=item *

L<Dancer::Timer> - inside Dancer framework
