Display the profile data for an object file. The file’s symbol table is compared with the call graph profile file gmon.out (previously created by compiling with gcc -pg). Many of gprof’s options take a symbol-specification argument, or symspec, to limit the option to specified files or functions. The symspec may be a filename, a function, or a line number. It can also be given as filename:function or filename:linenumber to specify a function or line number in a specific file. gprof expects filenames to contain a period and functions to not contain a period.
Do not display statically declared functions. Since their information might still be relevant, append it to the information about the functions loaded immediately before.
Do not display information about each field in the profile.
Consult the object file’s text area to attempt to determine the program’s static call graph. Display static-only parents and children with call counts of 0.
Specify whether C++ symbols should be demangled or not. They are demangled by default. If profiling a program built by a different compiler, you may need to specify the mangling style.
Print suggested function order based on profiling data.
Print suggested link line order for .o files based on profiling data. Read function name to object file mappings from file. This file can be ...
