NAME

function_profile() - get function profiling information for an object

SYNOPSIS

mixed *function_profile( object ob );

DESCRIPTION

Returns  function  profiling  information for 'ob', or this_object() if
'ob' is not specified.  This is only available if the driver  was  com‐
piled with PROFILE_FUNCTIONS defined.

RETURN VALUE

An  array  of  mappings is returned, one for each function in 'ob', the
format of the mapping is:
       ([ "name"     : name_of_the_function,
          "calls"    : number_of_calls,

          /* cpu time expressed in microseconds */
          "self"     : cpu_time_spent_in self,
          "children" : cpu_time_spent_in_children
       ])
The usefulness of this is tied to the resolution of the CPU clock--even
though  the  units  are microseconds, the CPU timer resolution is often
much less
