First, let me thank everyone who responded to my *first* post to this
This seems like a really good 'community', I'm gonna hang around.  ;-)

Now, I've written many bash scripts in RedHat, and FreeBSD's set of
commands *is* just a little bit different, but I'm gonna need a little
shove in the right direction here.

I'm not asking for anyone to re-write anything for me, just a friendly
suggestion as to exactly to implement the 'time' command so that the
file that my daily_report script generates includes the elapsed time in
hundredths on the proper line.

I've attached the script for reference.
