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) command.
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.
