Measure Time Intervals

Possible solution


#include <chrono>
#include <functional>

namespace modern_cpp {

using time_interval_t = std::chrono::microseconds;
using clock = std::chrono::high_resolution_clock;

template<typename Func, typename... Args>
static time_interval_t duration(Func&& func, Args... args) {
    const auto start = clock::now();
    std::invoke(std::forward<Func>(func), std::forward<Args>(args)...);
    return std::chrono::duration_cast<time_interval_t>(clock::now() - start);
