elapsedTiming -- time a computation using time elapsed


elapsedTiming e evaluates e and returns a list of type Time of the form {t,v}, where t is the number of seconds of time elapsed, and v is the value of the expression.

The default method for printing such timing results is to display the timing separately in a comment below the computed value.
i1 : elapsedTiming sleep 1

o1 = 0
     -- 1.00011 seconds

o1 : Time
i2 : peek oo

o2 = Time{1.00011, 0}
