Measuring the Performance and Behavior of Icon Programs
January 1983 (vol. 9 no. 1)
pp. 93-103
C.A. Coutant, Information Systems Laboratory
The importance of the ability to measure the performance of programs written in high-level languages is well known. Performance measurement enables users to locate and correct program inefficiencies where automatic optimizations fail and provides a tool for understanding program behavior. This paper describes performance measurement facilities for the Icon programming language, and shows not only how these facilities provided insight into program behavior, but also how they were used to improve the implementation.
Index Terms:
storage management, Icon, program measurement
