Calling Sequence




a Scilab function


To use showprofile the Scilab function must have been prepared for profiling (see exec).

For such function, When such a function is executed the systems counts how many time each line is executed and how may cpu time is spend for each line execution. These data are stored within the function data structure. The showprofile function outputs profiling results (see profile) with text of the function lines.

Function text is rebuild with fun2string.


//define function and prepare it for profiling
deff('x=foo(n)',['if n==0 then'
                 '  x=[]'
                 '  x=0'
                 '  for k=1:n'
                 '    s=svd(rand(n+10,n+10))'
                 '    x=x+s(1)'
                 '  end'

//call the function

//get execution profiles
