Package: prof

The profiler collects samples (how often depends on the value of *granularity*) and stores them in a file. This variable, whose value must be a positive integer, specifies the maximum number of samples to be collected. Its default value is 100000. (Fewer samples may be collected if the profiler is stopped before the maximum is reached.) For time profiles, values less than 1000 are unlikely to produce any meaningful data, but for space profiles, statistically valid information can result from fewer samples since every request for memory is analyzed.

See profiling.htm for general information on profiling. Note that the profiler is not available with some Allegro CL products.

The documentation is described in introduction.htm and the index is in index.htm.
