Which is better to use for timing in Python? time.clock() or time.time()? Which one provides more accuracy?
start = time.clock() ... do something elapsed = (time.clock() - start)
start = time.time() ... do something elapsed = (time.time() - start)
From the comments I received and others I have talked with, it looks like the answer is: use time() on Unix/Linux systems and clock() on Windows systems. However, the 'timeit' module gives you more options and is accurate across platforms.
