Add timestamps to Unix commands that run at intervals
Authored by: bashbash on Jan 25, '10 12:28:53AM


May I humbly suggest to give C a go. You never know, it might give perl a run for its money? (just joking)

Also, if you really do want to compare the overheads of perl and date, you might need a different benchmark: I was under the impression that "benchmarks" generally try to achieve the same result with the same algorithm. I could be wrong there too though.

In future, I'll just recommend people become perl wizards rather helping them expand their knowledge . That's worked well for everyone so far.
