tips for calculating the MIPS

Hello C6x Pals
I want know some basic tips for calculating the MIPS.
Can any one suggest as how to calculate the MIPS for
a code written in C. Will profiling help me ?

Are MIPS the general indicators of an efficient code?
For C6211 for instance,it reads as 1200 MIPS, but thats
under the assumption that all instructions are executing
in parallel.

Pls do reply with your valuable suggestions in this regard

Thank u
