I use NYTProf often enough to have aliases
set to maximize laziness:
alias profile='perl -d:NYTProf'
alias profileh='nytprofhtml --open'
That's been working for a very long time.
I don't know how to use NYTProf wrong.
It works well for me except for this one
big module that does things which would
cause modern PerlMonks to hide their
children, but under strict conditions
with no warnings, so I don't see why
it upsets NYTProf.
I'm happy with the hack that gets me a
report because I like to browse code
as a website. Seeing it outside the
comfort of my editor provides a different
perspective. Maybe this thread
will be useful to whoever adopts NYTProf
and tries to improve filename handling of
the profiler. Thanks for guessing :)
