DPROF2CALLTREE(1) General Commands Manual DPROF2CALLTREE(1)

NAME

dprof2calltree - convert perl's DProf profiling data to KCachegrind calltree format

SYNOPSIS

dprof2calltree -f input [ -o output ]

DESCRIPTION

dprof2calltree reads the tmon.out profiling data output by Perl's Devel::DProf profiling package, and converts it into calltree format for use by KCachegrind.
This utility is part of the KDE Software Development Kit.

OPTIONS

-f input
Specifies the DProf tmon.out file to convert.
-o output
Write the calltree output to the given file for use by KCachegrind. If omitted, the output will be written to file of the form cachgrind.out.<input>.

EXAMPLE

If you run a perl script as:
perl -d:DProf yourscript.pl
then this will write profiling data to tmon.out. You can then work with this data in KCachegrind as follows:
dprof2calltree -f tmin.out -o cachegrind.out.foo
 
kcachegrind cachegrind.out.foo
