NAME

Benchmark::ProgressBar - Display Progress Bar While You Wait For Your Benchmark

SYNOPSIS

  use Benchmark::ProgressBar qw(cmpthese);

  cmpthese(10_000, {
    a => sub { ... },
    b => sub { ... },
  } );

DESCRIPTION

This is a VERY crude combination of Benchmark.pm and Term::ProgressBar. Basically I got sick of waiting for my benchmarks to finish up without knowing an ETA.

You can use it as a drop-in replacement for Benchmark.pm, but the only functions that would display a progress bar are the ones listed here: cmpthese, timethese, and timeit.

This is achieved via crude (a VERY crude) re-definition of Benchmark.pm's subrountines, so you shouldn't be mixing it with Benchmark.pm (I don't know why you would)

It does the job for me, YMMV. Patches are welcome.
