App::Timer - Timer for your application.
Every time, I create a command line tool in Perl, I would just add the following lines at the end of the script.
my $time = time - $^T;
my $mm = $time / 60;
my $ss = $time % 60;
my $hh = $mm / 60;
printf("The program ran for %02d:%02d:%02d.\n", $hh, $mm%60, $ss);
Having done it more than once, I decided to come up with something as smooth as possible. This is my pure Perl solution.
I found somewhat similar work done in Timer::Runtime. The only issue is that it has dependency on a non-core module Time::Elapse.
To get the timer enable for your command line tool, just add the line below at the top of the script and you are good to go.
Or if you don't want to pollute your script then you can do this too.
$ perl -MApp::Timer your-script.pl
