NAME

Unix::Getrusage - Perl interface to the Unix getrusage system call

SYNOPSIS

  use Unix::Getrusage;

  my $usage = getrusage; # getrusage(RUSAGE_SELF, ...)
  print "CPU time: ", $usage->{ru_utime}, "\n";

DESCRIPTION

Both getrusage and getrusage_children (no arguments) return what the getrusage() call returns: ressource utilization of either the calling process or its children. They return hash references (to avoid unneccessary copying) of the rusage struct:

  use Unix::Getrusage;
  use Data::Dumper;

  my $usage = getrusage; # see above
  print Data::Dumper->new([$usage])->Dump;

which outputs something like this:

  $VAR1 = {
            'ru_nivcsw' => '12',
            'ru_nvcsw' => '0',
            ...,
            'ru_utime' => '0.104414',
            'ru_stime' => '0.008031',
            'ru_nsignals' => '0'
          };

EXPORT
