Importance_2
benchmark(caption = "", label_width = nil, fmtstr = nil, *labels) public

Invokes the block with a Benchmark::Report object, which may be used to collect and report on the results of individual benchmark tests. Reserves label_width 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 Benchmark::Tms 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]
end
