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.
Open the given profiling output file.
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/.
