Re: profiler

Robert Bruce Findler asks on 13 DEC:
  Is there a profiler for MCL available anywheres?
Yes, you can examine the metering.lisp code written by Mark Kantorwitz
at Carnegie Mellon University. The file is available by anonymous-ftp
from CMU. The information should be in the Lisp FAQ for this group.
I don't remember the address, but you can send mail to mkant@GS8.SP.CS.CMU.EDU
if it is not in the FAQ. I think the code also includes a cons-counter
for counting the number of cells allocated. The reporting functions
work like a charm. Just remember to start profiling the top functions,
then selectively profile the major functions. Don't profile everything
or you'll be sppedning all the time profiling and not executing.
