Timing a python program run

Hi,

In matlab, I'd calculate the time for a script named test.m to run
with:
>tic, run, toc
Is there some way to do this in python on a mac os x from the terminal
window? Or whatever?

You can use:

% time script.py

from the command line of the terminal

The timeit module may be of use:

simplest way is just put a timer on start and another on the end,
then calc the elapse. You can also take a look timeit module too
which provides similar but more powerful functions...
