Hitimes 0.4.0 Released


#1

hitimes version 0.4.0 has been released.

gem install hitimes

http://copiousfreetime.rubyforge.org/hitimes/

Hitimes is a fast, high resolution timer library for recording
performance metrics. It uses the appropriate C method calls for each
system to get the highest granularity time increments possible.

It currently supports any system with the POSIX call clock_gettime(),
Mac OS X and Windows.

Using Hitimes can be faster than using a series of Time.new calls, and
it will have a much higher granularity. It is definitely faster than
using Process.times.
