<H2>Metering: Portable Code Profiling Tool</H2>
<A HREF="./">lang/lisp/code/tools/metering/</A>
METERING is a portable code profiling tool, for gathering timing and
consing statistics while a program is running. This is a combination
of the Monitor package written by Chris McConnell and the Profile
package written by Skef Wholey and Rob MacLachlan, with several
extensions. Monitors the use of functions and macros: calls, CPU
time, clock time, and storage use.

Version: v2.1 (25-JAN-94)
Requires: Common Lisp
Ports: Portable, with three small implementation-dependent
changes for new Common Lisp implementations. Tested in
CMU CL, MACL, MCL, Allegro CL, Lucid CL, AKCL, IBCL.
Copying: Public domain.

Hi Mark,
I use your Common Lisp metering system pretty often on under MCL 2.01.
Thanks for making this nice profiling tool available, it has helped alot.
However, I notied that the amount of space used by functions that contain
an &optional is much higher for the monitoring-encapsulation than
from the original function. I beleive this is because the encapsulation
creates a list for the optional arguments using &rest. If one adds
a dynmaic-extentent declaration after the lambda list in many implementations
of Common Lisp the &rest arglist will be stack allocated and the amount of
storage reported will be a truer indication of how the function performs
outside of the encapsulation. Below is the modification that I'm currently
using and seems to work at least under MCL.
