______________________________________________________________________________

NAME
       time - Time the execution of a script

SYNOPSIS
       time script ?count?
_________________________________________________________________

DESCRIPTION
       This  command  will  call  the  Tcl interpreter count times to evaluate
       script (or once if count	is not specified).   It	 will  then  return  a
       string of the form
	      503 microseconds per iteration
       which  indicates	 the average amount of time required per iteration, in
       microseconds.  Time is measured in elapsed time,	not CPU	time.

EXAMPLE
       Estimate	how long it takes for a	simple Tcl for	loop  to  count	 to  a
       thousand:
	      time {
		  for {set i 0}	{$i<1000} {incr	i} {
		      #	empty body
		  }
	      }
