# show_deltas: Read list of printk messages instrumented with
# time data, and format with time deltas.
# Also, you can show the times relative to a fixed point.

def usage():
print """usage: show_delta [<options>] <filename>
This program parses the output from a set of printk message lines which
have time data prefixed because the CONFIG_PRINTK_TIME option is set, or
the kernel command line option "time" is specified. When run with no
options, the time information is converted to show the time delta between
each printk line and the next. When run with the '-b' option, all times
are relative to a single (base) point in time.
-h Show this usage help.
-b <base> Specify a base for time references.
<base> can be a number or a string.
If it is a string, the first message line
which matches (at the beginning of the
line) is used as the time reference.
ex: $ dmesg >timefile
$ show_delta -b NET4 timefile
will show times relative to the line in the kernel output
starting with "NET4".
# returns a tuple containing the seconds and text for each message line
# seconds is returned as a float
