@echo off @setlocal set start=%time% :: Runs your command cmd /c %* set end=%time% set options="tokens=1-4 delims=:.," for /f %options% %%a in ("%start%") do set start_h=%%a&set /a start_m=100%%b %% 100&set /a start_s=100%%c %% 100&set /a start_ms=100%%d %% 100 for /f %options% %%a in ("%end%") do set end_h=%%a&set /a end_m=100%%b %% 100&set /a end_s=100%%c %% 100&set /a end_ms=100%%d %% 100 set /a hours=%end_h%-%start_h% set /a mins=%end_m%-%start_m% set /a secs=%end_s%-%start_s% set /a ms=%end_ms%-%start_ms% if %ms% lss 0 set /a secs = %secs% - 1 & set /a ms = 100%ms% if %secs% lss 0 set /a mins = %mins% - 1 & set /a secs = 60%secs% if %mins% lss 0 set /a hours = %hours% - 1 & set /a mins = 60%mins% if %hours% lss 0 set /a hours = 24%hours% if 1%ms% lss 100 set ms=0%ms% :: Mission accomplished set /a totalsecs = %hours%*3600 + %mins%*60 + %secs% echo Execution time %hours%:%mins%:%secs%.%ms% (%totalsecs%.%ms%s total)
How to use
You can use the script from CMD with the command
ExecutionTime [your command]
For example, you want to calculate the execution time required by the file ” myscript.bat ” you can use the following command
And if you want to count the length of time you use Microsoft Word. You can type as follows
