    Software performance and benchmark testing

    I would like to run some preformance tests on a program that I created. I am interested in getting information concerning how much memory my program uses, where my bottle necks are, how long it spends in each function, things like that.

    Are there any freeware software packages that anyone could recommand? Does Microsoft Visual C++ (6.0) already have this functionality?

    It does, if you have the professional or enterprise edition.

    Or grab Dev-C++, and use the GNU gcov and gprof tools to do the same thing.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
