Devel::EndStats - Display run time and dependencies after running code
# from the command line % perl -MDevel::EndStats script.pl ##### sample output ##### <normal script output, if any...> # BEGIN stats from Devel::EndStats # Program runtime duration: 0.055s # Total number of required files loaded: 132 # Total number of required lines loaded: 48772 # END stats ##### sample output (with verbose=1, some cut) ##### <normal script output, if any...> # BEGIN stats from Devel::EndStats # Program runtime duration: 0.055s # Total number of required files loaded: 132 # Total number of required lines loaded: 48772 # # 1 1747 lines 0.023489s( 43%) Log/Any/App.pm (loaded by main) # # 52 1106 lines 0.015112s( 28%) Log/Log4perl/Logger.pm (loaded by Log::Log4perl) # # 17 190 lines 0.011983s( 22%) Log/Any/Adapter.pm (loaded by Log::Any::App) # # 18 152 lines 0.011679s( 21%) Log/Any/Manager.pm (loaded by Log::Any::Adapter) # # 5 981 lines 0.007299s( 13%) File/Path.pm (loaded by Log::Any::App) ... # END stats
Devel::EndStats runs in the END block, displaying various statistics about your program, such as:
Devel::EndStats should be loaded before other modules, for example by running it on the command-line, as shown in the SYNOPSIS.
Some options are accepted. They can be passed via the use statement:
# from the command line % perl -MDevel::EndStats=verbose,1 script.pl # from script use Devel::EndStats verbose=>1;
or via the DEVELENDSTATS_OPTS environment variable:
% DEVELENDSTATS_OPTS='verbose=1' perl -MDevel::EndStats script.pl
Can also be set via VERBOSE environment variable. If set to true, display more statistics (like per-module statistics).
Set how to sort the list of loaded modules ('file' = by file, 'time' = by load time, 'caller' = by first caller's package, 'order' = by order of loading, 'lines' = by number of lines). Only relevant when 'verbose' is on.
By default, if BEGIN phase did not succeed, stats will not be shown. This option forces displaying the stats.
This module might be useful during development. I first wrote this module when trying to reduce startup overhead of a command line application, by looking at how many modules the app has loaded and try to avoid loading modules whenever it's unnecessary.
Sure, if it's useful. As they say, (comments|patches) are welcome.
There are many modules on CPAN that can be used to generate dependency information for your code. Neil Bowers has written a review that covers most of them.
* Exclusive instead of inclusive timing for each require.
* Stat: memory usage.
* Stat: system/user time.
* Stat: number of open files (sockets).
* Stat: number of child processes.
* Stat: number of actual code lines (vs blanks, data, comment, POD)
* Stat: number of XS vs PP modules.
* Feature: remember last run's stats, compare with current run.
