       kprof - a KDE3 visual tool to help analyze profiling results


       kprof [ generic-options ] [ -f file ] [ -p profiler ]


       KProf  is  a  visual  tool  for  developers that displays the execution
       profiling output generated by code profiling tools. The output of gprof
       being  usually difficult to read (beyond the flat profile information),
       KProf presents the information in list- or  tree-views  that  make  the
       execution profiling information very easy to understand.

       Currently  supported  profilers  include  GNU gprof, Function Check and
       Palm OS Emulator with profile option.


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

       -f file
              Open the given profiling output file.

       -p profiler
              Specifies which profiler was used to create the profiling output
              file.  The profiler argument must be one of gprof  (GNU  gprof),
              fnccheck (Function Check) or pose (Palm OS Emulator).



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

       If  the  KDE  Help  Centre  is  not  installed  then  you can read this
       documentation in HTML format from /usr/share/doc/kde/HTML/en/kprof/.
