when he logs in, start counting the time with:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. use Time::HiRes qw(gettimeofday tv_interval); #get better than 1 second resolution
  2. $startTime = [gettimeofday]; # starting time
when he logs out, requests a new webpage, or whatever event you want to measure, count the time with:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. $currentTime = [gettimeofday]; # current time
  2. print tv_interval($startTime, $currentTime ); # print elapsed time.
