Recent advances in the generation of attosecond-duration electromagnetic pulses demand the development of methods to measure them. The combination of sources and measurement technology provides an important set of tools for the study of electron dynamics in matter of all kinds. I survey several recent proposals for attoseconds metrology, and compare their efficacy and range of applicability.
