It sounds like doing the online course would help. You can find it,

To directly answer your question, here's a program which prints
'hello' 1000 times by calling the 'fwrite' function in the module
'hello' 1000 times, after importing it:
Start = time(),
It returns the start and finish times. On my machine they differ by
about a second.
