NAME

       Xacobeo::Timer - A custom made timer.

SYNOPSIS

               use Xacobeo::Timer;

               # As a one time use
               my $timer = Xacobeo::Timer->start("Long operation");
               do_long_operation();
               $timer->elapsed(); # Displays the time elapsed

               # A simple stop watch (the destructor displays the time elapsed)
               my $TIMER = Xacobeo::Timer->new("Method calls");
               sub hotspot {
                       $TIMER->start();
                       # Very slow stuff here
                       $TIMER->stop();
               }

DESCRIPTION

       This package provides a very simple timer. This timer is used for finding hot spots in the
       application.

       The timer is quite simple it provides the method "start" that starts the timer and the
       method "stop" that stops the timer and accumulates the elapsed time.  The method "show"
       can be used to print the time elapsed so far while the method "elapsed" returns the time
       elapsed so far.

       When an instance of this class dies (because it was undefed or collected by the garbage
       collector) the builtin Perl desctrutor will automatically call the method "show". But if
       the method show or elapsed was called during the lifetime of the instance then the
       destructor will not invoke the method show.

METHODS

       The package defines the following methods:

   new
       Creates a new Timer.

       Parameters:

       ·   $name (Optional)

           The name of the timer.

   start
       Starts the timer. If this sub is called without a blessed instance then a new Timer will
       be created.

       Parameters:

       ·   $name (optional)

           The name is used only when called without a blessed instance.

   stop
       Stops the timer and adds accumulates the elapsed time. If the timer wasn't started
       previously this results in a no-op.

   show
       Prints the elapsed time. This method stops the timer if it was started previously and
       wasn't stopped.

   elapsed
       Returns the total time elapsed so far. If the timer was already started the pending time
       will not be taking into account.
