Description

Description:
BIS fnc codePerformance.png
Measures how much time it takes to execute given expression. Results may vary based on overall performance; use this function to compare alternative scripting approaches rather than to measure specific values. Upon function execution, window with results is opened. The user then has a choice to copy the result into clipboard or not.

This function is using diag_codePerformance command.
Keep in mind that this takes string, and that you can't pass str _code as string because that add's curly braces to the string.
