NAME

       hotshot2calltree - convert hotshot profiling data to KCachegrind calltree format

SYNOPSIS

       hotshot2calltree [ --file-limit limit ] -o output input [ input ... ]

DESCRIPTION

       hotshot2calltree  reads  one  or  more pstat profiling data files as output by the hotshot
       python profiler, and converts them into calltree format for use by KCachegrind.

       This utility is part of the KDE Software Development Kit.

OPTIONS

       -o output
              Write the calltree output into the given file for use by KCachegrind.  This may  be
              - if you wish to write to standard output.

       input ...
              Read the hotshot profiling data from the given file(s).

       --file-limit limit
              Stop after the given number of input files.

EXAMPLE

       Suppose  that  you  have  used hotshot to profile a python app, with results dumped to the
       file pythongrind.prof.  You may then work with this data in KCachegrind as follows.

              hotshot2cachegrind -o cachegrind.out.0 pythongrind.prof
              kcachegrind cachegrind.out.0
