GNU gprof

4.3 Miscellaneous Options

The `-d num' option specifies debugging options. If num is not specified, enable all debugging. See section 9.3.1 Debugging gprof.

Selects the format of the profile data files. Recognized formats are `auto' (the default), `bsd', `4.4bsd', `magic', and `prof' (not yet supported).

The `-s' option causes gprof to summarize the information in the profile data files it read in, and write out a profile data file called `gmon.sum', which contains all the information from the profile data files that gprof read in. The file `gmon.sum' may be one of the specified input files; the effect of this is to merge the data in the other input files into `gmon.sum'.

Eventually you can run gprof again without `-s' to analyze the cumulative data in the file `gmon.sum'.

The `-v' flag causes gprof to print the current version number, and then exit.
