OCAMLPROF(1)						      General Commands Manual						      OCAMLPROF(1)

NAME
ocamlprof - The OCaml profiler SYNOPSIS
ocamlprof [ options ] filename ... DESCRIPTION
The ocamlprof command prints execution counts gathered during the execution of a OCaml program instrumented with ocamlcp(1). It produces a source listing of the program modules given as arguments where execution counts have been inserted as comments. For instance, ocamlprof foo.ml prints the source code for the foo module, with comments indicating how many times the functions in this module have been called. Natu- rally, this information is accurate only if the source file has not been modified since the profiling execution took place. OPTIONS
-f dumpfile Specifies an alternate dump file of profiling information. -F string Specifies an additional string to be output with profiling information. By default, ocamlprof(1) will annotate programs with com- ments of the form (* n *) where n is the counter value for a profiling point. With option -F s the annotation will be (* sn *) -impl filename Compile the file filename as an implementation file, even if its extension is not .ml. -intf filename Compile the file filename as an interface file, even if its extension is not .mli. -version Print version string and exit. -vnum Print short version number and exit. -help or --help Display a short usage summary and exit.

NAME
ocamlcp, ocamloptp - The OCaml profiling compilers SYNOPSIS
ocamlcp [ ocamlc options ] [ -P flags ] filename ... ocamloptp [ ocamlopt options ] [ -P flags ] filename ... DESCRIPTION
The ocamlcp and ocamloptp commands are front-ends to ocamlc(1) and ocamlopt(1) that instrument the source code, adding code to record how many times functions are called, branches of conditionals are taken, etc. Execution of instrumented code produces an execution profile in the file ocamlprof.dump, which can be read using ocamlprof(1). ocamlcp accepts the same arguments and options as ocamlc(1) and ocamloptp accepts the same arguments and options as ocamlopt(1). There is only one exception: in both cases, the -pp option is not supported. If you need to preprocess your source files, you will have to do it separately before calling ocamlcp or ocamloptp. OPTIONS
In addition to the ocamlc(1) or ocamlopt(1) options, ocamlcp and ocamloptp accept one option to control the kind of profiling information, the -P letters option. The letters indicate which parts of the program should be profiled: a all options f function calls : a count point is set at the beginning of each function body i if ... then ... else: count points are set in both then and else branches l while, for loops: a count point is set at the beginning of the loop body m match branches: a count point is set at the beginning of the body of each branch of a pattern-matching t try ... with branches: a count point is set at the beginning of the body of each branch of an exception catcher For instance, compiling with ocamlcp -P film profiles function calls, if ... then ... else ..., loops, and pattern matching. Calling ocamlcp(1) or ocamloptp(1) without the -P option defaults to -P fm, meaning that only function calls and pattern matching are pro- filed. Note: for compatibility with previous versions, ocamlcp(1) also accepts the option -p with the same argument and meaning as -P. SEE ALSO
