  pddump - Dump	profiling data files


  pddump  file...


      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.
