Using gprof on cygwin DLL
Tue Jan 23 13:31:00 GMT 2001
I would like to run gprof on some cygwin-based tools, like make or gcc. I
assumed that rebuilding the cygwin DLL (as well as rebuilding other tools),
enabled for profiling with the "-pg" flag, would tell me where time was being
spent in cygwin itself. Will this approach work, or does anyone have
experience doing this? Is this even a reasonable thing to attempt?
I tried building cygwin1.dll with profiling enabled, but it looks like no tools
(bash, grep, etc.) can use the new dll. I get an error dialog "The application
failed to initialize properly (0xc00000fd)." I checked the static dependencies
for bash.exe against the new dll, and did not see any "red flags."
