;;; Commentary:
;;
;; This program is based on the only two existing Emacs Lisp profilers
;; that I'm aware of, Boaz Ben-Zvi's profile.el, and Root Boy Jim's
;; profiler.el. Both were written for Emacs 18 and both were pretty
;; good first shots at profiling, but I found that they didn't provide
;; the functionality or interface that I wanted.  So I wrote this.
;; I've tested elp in Lucid Emacs 19.9 and in Emacs 19.22. There's no
;; point in even trying to make this work with Emacs 18.

;; Unlike previous profilers, elp uses Emacs 19's built-in function
;; current-time to return interval times.  This obviates the need for
;; both an external C program and Emacs processes to communicate with
;; such a program, and thus simplifies the package as a whole.  One
;; small shortcut: I throw away the most significant 16 bits of
;; seconds returned by current-time since I doubt anyone will ever
;; want to profile stuff on the order of 18 hours.  2^16 == 65536
;; seconds == ~1092 minutes == ~18 hours.

;; Note that there are plenty of factors that could make the times
;; reported unreliable, including the accuracy and granularity of your
;; system clock, and the overhead spent in lisp calculating and
;; recording the intervals.  The latter I figure is pretty constant
;; so, while the times may not be entirely accurate, I think they'll
;; give you a good feel for the relative amount of work spent in the
;; various lisp routines you are profiling.  Note further that times
;; are calculated using wall-clock time, so other system load will
;; affect accuracy too.

;; There are only 3 variables you can change to customize behavior of
;; elp. See below for their description.
;;
;; Here is a list of the interactive commands you can use:
;;   elp-instrument-function
;;   elp-restore-function
;;   elp-instrument-list
;;   elp-restore-list
;;   elp-restore-all
;;   elp-reset-function
;;   elp-reset-list
;;   elp-reset-all
;;   elp-results
;;   elp-submit-bug-report
;;
;; Here are some brief usage notes.  If you want to profile a bunch of
;; functions, set elp-function-list to the list of symbols, then call
;; elp-instrument-list.  This hacks the functions so that profiling
;; information is recorded whenever they are called.  To print out the
;; current results, use elp-results.  With elp-reset-after-results set
;; to non-nil, profiling information will be reset whenever the
;; results are displayed, but you can reset all profiling info with
;; elp-reset-all.
;;
;; If you want to sort the results, set elp-sort-by-function to some
;; predicate function.  The three most obvious choices are predefined:
;; elp-sort-by-call-count, elp-sort-by-average-time, and
;; elp-sort-by-total-time.
;;
;; Elp can instrument byte-compiled functions just as easily as
;; interpreted functions.  However, when you redefine a function (e.g.
;; with eval-defun), you'll need to re-instrument it with
;; elp-instrument-function.  Re-instrumenting resets profiling
;; information for that function.  Elp can also handle interactive
;; functions (i.e. commands), but of course any time spent idling for
;; user prompts will show up in the timing results.
;;
;; You can also designate a `master' function.  Profiling times will
;; be gathered for instrumented functions only during execution of
;; this master function.  Thus, if you have some defuns like:
;;
;;  (defun foo () (do-something-time-intensive))
;;  (defun bar () (foo))
;;  (defun baz () (bar) (foo))
;;
;; and you want to find out the amount of time spent in bar and foo,
;; but only during execution of bar, make bar the master and the call
;; of foo from baz will not add to foo's total timing sums.  Use
;; elp-set-master and elp-unset-master to utilize this feature.  Only
;; one master function can be used at a time.

;; You can restore any function's original function definition with
;; elp-restore-function.  The other instrument, restore, and reset
;; functions are provided for symmetry.

You can write you're own sort function. It should adhere to the
interface specified by the PRED argument for the `sort' defun.  Each
\"element of LIST\" is really a 4 element vector where element 0 is
the call count, element 1 is the total time spent in the function,
element 2 is the average time spent in the function, and element 3 is
the symbol's name string.")
