Project Description

timer is a C extension that provides a Timer class that operates similar to the threading module’s Timer factory. Provided a duration in microseconds and a callable, the timer can be constructed and started.:

>>> callback = lambda: print("Time up!")
>>> t = timer.Timer(1000000, callback) # One second timer
>>> t.start()
Time up!

Timer objects can also be constructed with optional arguments and keyword arguments to be passed to the callback.:

>>> def callback(*args, **kwargs):
...     print(args, kwargs)
>>> t = timer.Timer(1000000, callback, 1, 2, 3, hurf="durf")
>>> t.start()
(1, 2, 3) {'hurf': 'durf'}

Timer objects provide microsecond resolution when stopped. The value is returned from the stop method, and also available in the elapsed attribute.:

>>> t = timer.Timer(10000000, callback) # Ten second timer
>>> t.start()
>>> # Call stop after about three seconds
>>> t.stop()
>>> # Close enough, that's 3.534569 seconds
>>> t.elapsed

For an idea of how this works, check out the source code and/or read A number of Win32 APIs are used to supplement QueryPerformanceCounter to keep the timing high resolution and accurate.

This is fairly stable but doesn’t have a lot of tests and hasn’t been used all that much. I’ve tested it on Python 3.1 and backported it to work with Python 2.7. It probably works from other versions but I haven’t tried.
