pddump - Dump profiling data files
A data file generated by a profiled program. A valid file
is identified as a "profiling data file" by the file(1)
The pddump command displays, on the standard output, the
record definitions and data of the specified profiling
Each file's dump is prefixed by the line "File = file:".
This is followed by the file's field-alignment option and
a list containing the file's name/value attribute pairs
and the file's record definitions. Then each record in the
file is dumped, showing the name of the record and the
name and value of each of its fields.
Strings are printed within double quotes, unsigned integers
are printed in hexadecimal, and signed integers and
floating-point numbers are printed in decimal. Non-array
data lines contain equal signs to assist in filtering.
The content of the profiling data files produced by Tru64
UNIX may be expanded in future releases, but Tru64 UNIX
tools will continue to support older formats. To write
tools that process Tru64 UNIX profiling data files, use
the pdtostd(1) command to convert the Tru64 UNIX formats
to industry standard formats, where a standard format
exists. Alternatively, use the libpdf.a utilities to read
the profiling data files directly, skipping any new
attributes, records, or fields that may appear.
