profileD is a GTK2 GUI to display dmd's profiling information in a sorted
table with readable (demangled) function names.

How to build:

* Install the needed tools and libraries:

- Install dmd (v1) and libphobos (for D1)
  - Under Arch Linux: sudo pacman -S dmd libphobos
  - Or from http://www.digitalmars.com/d/download.html
- Install Code::Blocks (optional)
  - Under Arch Linux: sudo pacman -S codeblocks
  - Or from http://www.codeblocks.org/
- Install dsss
  - Under Arch Linux: sudo pacman -S dsss
  - Or from http://www.dsource.org/projects/dsss

- Get GtkD from http://www.dsource.org/projects/gtkd
- Open a terminal, unpack GtkD's archive and go inside the gtkd directory
- Run "dsss install"
  (note: this will build a bunch of libs I'm not using and copy them to
  ~/d/lib/, but will also copy the includes profileD needs to ~/d/include/)
  Alternatively, see http://www.dsource.org/projects/gtkd/wiki/BuildingWithDSSS
- Run "make gtkd"
- Copy libgtkd.a to your d libs directory (~/d/lib/)

* To build without Code::Blocks:

dmd -release -O -I/usr/lib/phobos -I~/d/include/d -c main.d
gcc -o profiled -L~/d/lib main.o -ldl -lgtkd -lphobos -lpthread

(Can probably be done with a one-liner and without gcc, too.)

* To build with Code::Blocks:

In Code::Blocks, Compiler Settings:
- Select Global compiler settings, Digital Mars D Compiler
- Linker settings:
  - Link libraries:
  - Other linker options:
      -L/home/<your user name>/d/lib
- Search directories
  - Compiler
  - Linker
- Toolchain executables
  - Click "Auto-detect", I guess. Or type (in field order):

Now you are ready to open the profiled.cbp project in Code::Blocks and build it.

Installing profileD:
Copy profiled (from the bin/Release or bin/Debug directory if you used
Code::Blocks) into your path (maybe /usr/local/bin/).

How to use profileD:
- Build your project with the -profile option.
- Delete any old "trace.*" file.
- Run your project, do stuff, and exit.
- Run profiled from the directory containing the "trace.log" of your project,
  or run "profiled /path/to/trace.log".
- Click on a column header to sort the table by this column.

Columns definitions:
Num calls    : Number of times this function was called.
Tree time    : Total time spent inside this function or in functions called by
               it, recursively.
%            : Tree time / tree time of main().
Func time    : Time spent inside this function (but not in functions called by
%            : Func time / tree time of main().
Avg Func time: Average time taken by one call of this function.
