    Default Time a recursive function

    I'd like to time a recursive function. Is there a neat way of doing this in the function it self or do I have to time it from out side?

    Do it outside of that method because, if you do it in the method itself you need a condition to figure out whether or not the method has been called for the first time and whether or not it is returning for the last time; with recursive methods that can be a bit messy and it takes some (a bit?) of time.

    kind regards,
