# == Overview
#
# The Benchmark module provides methods for benchmarking Ruby code, giving
# detailed reports on the time taken for each task.
#
# The Benchmark module provides methods to measure and report the time
# used to execute Ruby code.
#
# * Measure the time to construct the string given by the expression
# <tt>"a"*1_000_000</tt>:
#
# require 'benchmark'
#
# puts Benchmark.measure { "a"*1_000_000 }
#
# On my machine (FreeBSD 3.2 on P5, 100MHz) this generates:
#
# 1.166667 0.050000 1.216667 ( 0.571355)
#
# This report shows the user CPU time, system CPU time, the sum of
# the user and system CPU times, and the elapsed real time. The unit
# of time is seconds.
#
# * Do some experiments sequentially using the #bm method:
#
# require 'benchmark'
#
# n = 50000
# Benchmark.bm do |x|
# x.report { for i in 1..n; a = "1"; end }
# x.report { n.times do ; a = "1"; end }
# x.report { 1.upto(n) do ; a = "1"; end }
# end
#
# The result:
#
# user system total real
# 1.033333 0.016667 1.016667 ( 0.492106)
# 1.483333 0.000000 1.483333 ( 0.694605)
# 1.516667 0.000000 1.516667 ( 0.711077)
#
# * Continuing the previous example, put a label in each report:
#
# require 'benchmark'
#
# n = 50000
# Benchmark.bm(7) do |x|
# x.report("for:") { for i in 1..n; a = "1"; end }
# x.report("times:") { n.times do ; a = "1"; end }
# x.report("upto:") { 1.upto(n) do ; a = "1"; end }
# end
#
# The result:
#
# user system total real
# for: 1.050000 0.000000 1.050000 ( 0.503462)
# times: 1.533333 0.016667 1.550000 ( 0.735473)
# upto: 1.500000 0.016667 1.516667 ( 0.711239)
#
#
# * The times for some benchmarks depend on the order in which items
# are run. These differences are due to the cost of memory
# allocation and garbage collection. To avoid these discrepancies,
# the #bmbm method is provided. For example, to compare ways to
# sort an array of floats:
#
# require 'benchmark'
#
# array = (1..1000000).map { rand }
#
# Benchmark.bmbm do |x|
# x.report("sort!") { array.dup.sort! }
# x.report("sort") { array.dup.sort }
# end
#
# The result:
#
# Rehearsal -----------------------------------------
# sort! 11.928000 0.010000 11.938000 ( 12.756000)
# sort 13.048000 0.020000 13.068000 ( 13.857000)
# ------------------------------- total: 25.006000sec
#
# user system total real
# sort! 12.959000 0.010000 12.969000 ( 13.793000)
# sort 12.007000 0.000000 12.007000 ( 12.791000)
#
#
# * Report statistics of sequential experiments with unique labels,
# using the #benchmark method:
#
# require 'benchmark'
#
# n = 50000
# Benchmark.benchmark(" "*7 + CAPTION, 7, FMTSTR, ">total:", ">avg:") do |x|
# tf = x.report("for:") { for i in 1..n; a = "1"; end }
# tt = x.report("times:") { n.times do ; a = "1"; end }
# tu = x.report("upto:") { 1.upto(n) do ; a = "1"; end }
# [tf+tt+tu, (tf+tt+tu)/3]
# end
#
# The result:
#
# user system total real
# for: 1.016667 0.016667 1.033333 ( 0.485749)
# times: 1.450000 0.016667 1.466667 ( 0.681367)

# Invokes the block with a <tt>Benchmark::Report</tt> object, which
# may be used to collect and report on the results of individual
# benchmark tests. Reserves <i>label_width</i> leading spaces for
# labels on each line. Prints _caption_ at the top of the
# report, and uses _fmt_ to format each line.
# If the block returns an array of
# <tt>Benchmark::Tms</tt> objects, these will be used to format
# additional lines of output. If _label_ parameters are
# given, these are used to label these extra lines.
#
# _Note_: Other methods provide a simpler interface to this one, and are
# suitable for nearly all benchmarking requirements. See the examples in
# Benchmark, and the #bm and #bmbm methods.
#
# Example:
#
# require 'benchmark'
# include Benchmark # we need the CAPTION and FMTSTR constants
#
# n = 50000
# Benchmark.benchmark(" "*7 + CAPTION, 7, FMTSTR, ">total:", ">avg:") do |x|
# tf = x.report("for:") { for i in 1..n; a = "1"; end }
# tt = x.report("times:") { n.times do ; a = "1"; end }
# tu = x.report("upto:") { 1.upto(n) do ; a = "1"; end }
# [tf+tt+tu, (tf+tt+tu)/3]

# Sometimes benchmark results are skewed because code executed
# earlier encounters different garbage collection overheads than
# that run later. #bmbm attempts to minimize this effect by running
# the tests twice, the first time as a rehearsal in order to get the
# runtime environment stable, the second time for
# real. <tt>GC.start</tt> is executed before the start of each of
# the real timings; the cost of this is not included in the
# timings. In reality, though, there's only so much that #bmbm can
# do, and the results are not guaranteed to be isolated from garbage
# collection and other effects.
#
# Because #bmbm takes two passes through the tests, it can
# calculate the required label width.
