Now I need to measure the execution time of my generated code and I've been searched and I don't know if I'm looking with the wrong keywords but I could not find anything. I just need to measure the time of simple functions, like Ackermann and Fibonacci. Does anyone know how to measure the execution time of a Haskell program or function?

Another post (where someone didn't change the subject line) mentioned
looking at existing research in order to get an idea of what
methodology people used for profiling, so while we're at it, I might
as well plug my own master's thesis, where, in chapter 4, I wrote
about how I measured the performance of a Haskell optimization I
implemented externally to GHC:
Maybe it'll be helpful to you.
