 Profiling programs using gprof

"The source code has to be compiled with the -pg option ( also with -g if you want line-by-line profiling ). If the number of lines in the Make file is small you can append these options to each compilation command. However if the number of compilation commands is large then you can define/redefine the CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS parameter in the makefile and add this to every compilation command in the makefile. I will demonstrate the use of gprof using the gnu make utility."
