Re: Gprof output in 2.21.1 different than in 2.21.53
Is there a place where those changes in gprof's output are documented?
Yes - gprof/bsd_callg_bl.m and gprof/gprof.texi.
I would like to know if I have to rewrite my parser
I think that you are going to have to rewrite/extend your parser.
What seems to have changes is the<cycle> tags.
Are you *sure* that the version of gprof that you are using is the only
thing that has changed ?
The kind of output that you are describing can be generated by the
2.21.1 version of gprof. I suspect that what has actually changed is
the compiler that you are using and that you are now seeing the results
of function inlining that was not happening before.
