IPC::Run3::ProfReporter - A base class for handling profiling data
See IPC::Run3::ProfPP and for an example subclass.
This class just notes and accumulates times; subclasses use methods like "handle_app_call", "handle_run_exit" and "handle_app_exit" to emit reports on it. The default methods for these handlers are noops.
If run from the command line, a reporter will be created and run on each logfile given as a command line parameter or on run3.out if none are given.
This allows reports to be run like:
perl -MIPC::Run3::ProfPP -e1 perl -MIPC::Run3::ProfPP -e1 foo.out bar.out
Use "-" to read from STDIN (the log file format is meant to be moderately greppable):
grep "^cvs " run3.out perl -MIPC::Run3::ProfPP -e1 -
Use --app to show only application level statistics (ie don't emit a report section for each command run).
Returns a new profile reporting object.
$self->app_call( $time ); my $time = $self->get_app_call_time;
Sets the time (in floating point seconds) when the application, run3(), or system() was called or exited. If no time parameter is passed, uses IPC::Run3's time routine.
Use get_...() to retrieve these values (and _accum values, too). This is a separate method to speed the execution time of the setters just a bit.
