# This program splits up a jprof profile into multiple files based on a
# list of functions in a text file.  First, a complete profile is
# generated.  Then, for each line in the text file, a profile is
# generated containing only stacks that go through that line, and also
# excluding all stacks in earlier lines in the text file.  This means
# that the text file, from start to end, is splitting out pieces of the
# profile in their own file.  Finally, a final profile containing the
# remainder is produced.

# The program takes four arguments:
#   (1) The path to jprof.
#   (2) The path to the text file describing the splits.  The output
#       will be placed in the same directory as this file.
#   (3) The program that was profiled.
#   (4) The jprof-log file generated by the profile, to be split up.
# (Really, all arguments from (3) and later are passed through to
# jprof, so additional arguments could be provided if you want to pass
# additional arguments to jprof.)

# In slightly more detail:
# This script uses jprof's includes (-i) and excludes (-e) options to
# split profiles into segments.  It takes as input a single text file,
# and from that text file creates a series of jprof profiles in the
# directory the text file is in.
# The input file format looks like the following:
#   poll g_main_poll
#   GetRuleCascade CSSRuleProcessor::GetRuleCascade(nsPresContext *, nsIAtom *)
#   RuleProcessorData RuleProcessorData::RuleProcessorData(nsPresContext *, nsIContent *, nsRuleWalker *, nsCompatibility *)
# From this input file, the script will construct a profile called
# jprof-0.html that contains the whole profile, a profile called
# jprof-1-poll.html that includes only stacks with g_main_poll, a
# profile called jprof-2-GetRuleCascade.html that includes only stacks
# that have GetRuleCascade and do not have g_main_poll, a profile called
# jprof-3-RuleProcessorData.html that includes only stacks that have the
# RuleProcessorData constructor and do not have GetRuleCascade or
# g_main_poll, and a profile called jprof-4.html that includes only
# stacks that do not have any of the three functions in them.
# This means that all of the segments of the profile, except
# jprof-0.html, are mutually exclusive.  Thus clever ordering of the
# functions in the input file can lead to a logical splitting of the
# profile into segments.
