How to get Time difference from system time?

I am using the following to get the time:

puts Time.now --> starting of my script

<MY CODE>

puts Time.now --> end of my script

I want to get the Time difference between two Time.now
Problem I am facing is i cannot directly take the difference as Time.now displays the time in following format : "Tue Feb 12 19:55:37 +0530 2008"
Any other better way to solve it?

Cheers

You can subtract the times to get the number of seconds between. Then you will have to do some manipulation to get an output in a format you want. For instance, to determine the number of minutes and seconds a piece of code runs, you could use
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. @start = Time.now
  2. #Execute code
  3. @run_time = Time.now - @start
  4. p sprintf("%d min ", @run_time / 60) + sprintf("%0.2f sec", @run_time % 60)
