       kcachegrind - a visualisation tool for valgrind profiling output


       kcachegrind [ generic-options ] [ -r exec ] [ trace-file ]


       KCachegrind is a visualisation tool for the profiling data generated by
       calltree, a profiling skin for valgrind.  Applications can be  profiled
       using  calltree  without  being  recompiled,  and  shared libraries and
       plugin architectures are supported.

       For  visualising  the  output  from  other  profiling  tools,   several
       converters  are available.  On Debian systems these can be found in the
       kcachegrind-converters package.

       This application is part of the KDE Software Development Kit.


       Below are the kcachegrind-specific options.   For  a  full  summary  of
       options, run kcachegrind --help.

       -r exec
              Run the program exec under cachegrind.

              Visualise data from the given trace.


       calltree(1),           dprof2calltree(1),          hotshot2calltree(1),
       memprof2calltree(1), op2calltree(1), pprof2calltree(1), valgrind(1).

       Full user documentation is available through the KDE Help Centre.   You
       can  also  enter  the URL help:/kcachegrind/ directly into konqueror or
       you can run `khelpcenter help:/kcachegrind/' from the command-line.

       If the KDE Help Centre is  not  installed  then  you  can  install  the
