Windows: Equivalent to linux time command


the time command in Windows gets or sets the system time. If you need an equivalent to the linux time command – which measure the execution time of a given command – you can use the powershell commandlet Measure-Command. Limitation is that only the time can measure how long the command execution runs, not splited into user, system and realtime.

Measure-Command {start-process yourCommand.exe -argumentlist "argument1 argument2" -wait}
