# Timing (tic toc) - matlab

#1

Lumerical doesn’t have a timing function, for those whom have matlab, you can use the following code:

matlab('tic'); #Code goes here matlab('t=toc;'); matlabget(t); ? 'Total elapsed time: ' + num2str(t) + 's';

If you have matlab already linked, it is pretty fast and the easiest (not the best) way to timing in matlab.

Thanks, this is useful especially for some of long analysis scripts.
