Dear all,
  I am writing a program that for some reason one of the options takes
20 seconds to run while the other two combined take 12 seconds.  I have
the problem narrowed down to one line of code that is always run.  This
line executes a shell command via puts(`...`).  So, I am convinced the
reason the program takes so long lies in the puts source.  If anyone can
direct to that, I would be most grateful.

TL;DR:  My code is running slowly and I think puts(..) is the reason
why.  Anyone have the source for it?

Cheers,
  dlucci
