Is there a way to measure time with high-precision in Python --- more precise than one second? I doubt that there is a cross-platform way of doing that; I'm interesting in high precision time on Unix, particularly Solaris running on a Sun SPARC machine.
timeit seems to be capable of high-precision time measurement, but rather than measure how long a code snippet takes, I'd like to directly access the time values.
You can simply use the standard
>>> import time >>> time.time() 1261367718.971009
