The method is OK. Maybe you forgot to enable the clock
by going to the menu Profiler->Enable Clock.
As I suggested earlier, working with timer registers,
using CSL macros might be a little more efficient. The
flow would be the same as you use with clock(), but
instead TIMER macros would be used to get timer count
values. //I would modify your code to give an example
//Assuming that you configure the timer 2 in CDB
//For each frame restart the counter,
// to avoid wraparound problems
frameTime = TIMER_RGET(CNT2);//Total time for
//Then for each function
unsigned int start, stop;
static unsigned int sum = 0; //the function costs
static int enter_c = 0; //to count the times the
start = TIMER_RGET(CNT2);//clock_t start=clock();
// function is called
//At the end of every function, i put
//yy added, record is a structure
stop = TIMER_RGET(CNT2);//stop = clock();
sum += stop-start-overhead_c;
record.t = sum;

How to speed up profiling
Thanks for your answer
When i enable the clock by going to the menu Profiler->Enable Clock and run the program again, the stdout window says invalid CIO command(17). There's no such problem when i does not enable clock. Can you tell me what's wrong.

Sorry I couldn't reply to your earlier mail as I was busy with some other stuff.
I would discourage you from employing clock because it would be disadvantageous in case you wish that your application is repetitive.
In the sense, if you forget to Enable Clock from the Profiler menu, it wouldn't generate any stuff.
Coming to your problem, it has been a known problem that cio (Console I/O) module always has given problems to developers be it on any platform.
I would suggest you to create a separate memory section either in SDRAM or ISRAM but with a different name and space enough for only cio module. (You can know the space reqd. from the map file generated with earlier memory configurations). Place CIO in this section and I presume you shouldn't have any other problems regarding the same.
On the other hand, a simple and straight solution would be to use the TIMER module instead. Include csl (It will anyways be included already). Use the Timer module. You need to define the TIMER_Handle, Unsigned long variables to hold the values. You can find more information on using the same in the CSL documentation. Use TIMER_getCount which can make your application run independently i.e. in terms of the IDE and profiling.
Hope this helps.
Thanks and Regards,
Thanks for your answer. When i use TIMER_getCount() as you suggested, i always get 0. I have read through the help docoment about CSL, configured CDB file, used TIMER_start(). Anything else needed to be done to get it work?
I put cio module in the in SDRAM or ISRAM but with a different name as you suggested, but the problem still exists. What do you think causes the problem?
Check your JTAG drivers. Usually this should solve.
