NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       pddump - Dump profiling data files

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       pddump  file...

OPERANDS    [Toc]    [Back]

       A  data file generated by a profiled program. A valid file
       is identified as a "profiling data file"  by  the  file(1)

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  pddump  command displays, on the standard output, the
       record definitions and data  of  the  specified  profiling
       data files.

       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.
