Program Run Tiime Benchmark?


I was wondering if somebody knows of a program that can be run to determine the start and end times of another process? I tried searching SourceForge, but came up with nothing.

time <program>

info time

To find the date+time when it started ended you can always use the date command and a simple shell script, but I think all you wanted is the first one.
Tells you for how long the program has run, after it ends. I know of nothing that keeps a tally and tells you as the program is running.

Thanks, that's exactly what i wanted

When the program finishes, it gives 3 times:
What is the difference between these three times, and which one should i look at for time?
