`time : ('a -> 'b) -> 'a -> 'b`
STRUCTURE
SYNOPSIS
Measure how long a function application takes.
DESCRIPTION
An application time f x starts a clock, applies f to x, and then checks the clock to see how long that took. It prints out the elapsed runtime, garbage collection time, and system time before returning the value of f x.
FAILURE
If f x raises e, then time f x raises e, but still reports elapsed time.

```- time (int_sort) (for 0 999 I);
