time returns the number of seconds since the script started running.

See also: wait, yield


This example waits some random amount of time, then measures how long it takes you to react to a prompt by pressing a key. It does this by checking the value of time before (t0) and after (t1) the key.get call. Subtracting t0 from t1 gives the number of seconds between those times.

print "Get ready to press any key..."
wait 1 + 3*rnd
print "GO!"
t0 = time
t1 = time
print "That took you " + (t1 - t0) + " seconds.  Nice job!"
