Python | time.clock() method
Time module in Python provides various time related functions. time.clock() method of time module in Python is used to get the current processor time as a floating point number expressed in seconds. As, Most of the functions defined in time module call corresponding C library function. time.clock() method also call C library function of the same name to get the result. The precision of returned float value depends on the called C library function. Note: This method is deprecated since Python version 3.3 and will be removed in Python version 3.8. The behaviour of this method is platform dependent.
Syntax: time.clock() Parameter: No parameter is required. Return type: This method returns a float value which represents the current processor time in seconds.
Code #1: Use of time.clock() method to get current processor time
Current processor time (in seconds): 0.042379
Code #2: Use of time.clock() method to get current processor time
At the beginning of the calculation Processor time (in seconds): 0.03451 Factorial of 0: 1 Factorial of 1: 1 Factorial of 2: 2 Factorial of 3: 6 Factorial of 4: 24 Factorial of 5: 120 Factorial of 6: 720 Factorial of 7: 5040 Factorial of 8: 40320 Factorial of 9: 362880 At the end of the calculation Processor time (in seconds): 0.034715 Time elapsed during the calculation: 0.0002050000000000038
