GME

Geospatial Modelling Environment

timer (Command Timer)

Switches on or off the command timing utility that reports the processing time for each command in the output window

Description

For planning and scheduling purposes it is sometimes useful to know how long it takes to run commands on your datasets. Although timing data is always recorded and viewable in the GME File -- Command History interface, this command will also report timing data directly in the output window (this creates a more permanent timing record that you can view even after closing GME, whereas the Command History data will be lost when GME closes).

The timer in no way consumes processing power or slows down processing. The reported times are only accurate to within 1 second, so the timer is not useful for timing commands that run very quickly.

Syntax

timer(on);

on(TRUE/FALSE) if TRUE, processing times are reported for most commands

Example

timer(on=TRUE);

timer(on=FALSE);
