Every now and then I want to profile a given part of PHP code. For example I want to quickly check wether my current changeset to GeSHi works faster or is horribly slower. For a big change I’ll stick to Xdebug and KCachegrind. But for a quick overview? Overkill in my eyes.

Say hello to profile.class.php, a simple timer class for PHP5 which you can use to get an overview about where how much time is spent. This is in no way a scientific method nor should you take the results of a single run as a basis for you decisions.

I’ve set an emphasize on an easy API so you don’t have to pollute your code with arbitrary hoops and whistles.

UPDATE: You can find the current updated source in the SVN repo of GeSHi.
