Just some notes in public.
If we are going to use Dan's patch as it is (with a small exception),
the procedure is the following.
First we define the start of the build with:
start=`date +%s` #We don't want the nanoseconds here as Dan posted in his patch.
and the end with:
We take the difference and define the totalseconds:
TOTALSECONDS=`perl -e 'print '$end' - '$start', "\n"'`
Then we define the minutes:
MINUTES=$(($TOTALSECONDS / 60))
#and the seconds.
#Be careful not to mess with the internal Bash variable, that is SECONDS.
SECS=$(($TOTALSECONDS % 60))
#and the SBU:
SBU=`perl -e 'printf "%.3f\n" , ('$TOTALSECONDS' / '$SBU_UNIT', "\n")';`
Which produce for instance the following.
Taken from longest last build, that is first pass of gcc.
SBU_UNIT=176 #first pass of binutils
echo -e "Build time is: $MINUTES minutes and $SECS seconds"
Build time is: 26 minutes and 2 seconds
echo -e "Build time in seconds is: $TOTALSECONDS"
Build time in seconds is: 1562
echo -e "Approximate SBU time is:$SBU"
Approximate SBU time is: 8.875
I really think that doesn't deserve more work or mental thought, than we already
did, for that matter.
Too much effort for a little gain and for a task (SBU) that doesn't look important.
My main concern in this, was to drop bc as dependency.
Either way is fine.
