Project Description

I want a shell script (compatible for linux/mac OSX) that runs two different files X number of times, and performs a statistical analysis to see if one script runs faster than the other in a statically significant manner.

E.g. I normally run "time ./script1 [url removed, login to view]" and "time .script2 [url removed, login to view]", run both these commands approximately 10 times, then use the mean running time and variance to perform a t-test to see if one test runs faster than the other.

The file should take arguments: filename1, filename2, file1 input, file2 input, Number of times to run.

This should be a small project and not take very long.
