A method for the time analysis of programs

by S. L. de Freitas, P. J. Lavelle
Discussed is a technique for investigating the efficiency of compiled programs. Based on research that uses FORTRAN as a test subject, the method is more widely applicable. Time analyses show programmers points at which efficiencies may be increased. Also discussed are uses of the technique for comparing the efficiencies of compilers and languages, and for making performance/cost analyses. Presented are validation data for the method under several sets of conditions.
