It's a collection of decorators for profiling functions. E.g. to profile a single function:
from profilehooks import profile @profile def my_function(args, etc): pass
The results will be printed when the program exits (or you can use @profile(immediate=True)).
If you're interested in coarse timings and don't want to pay for the overhead of profiling, use
from profilehooks import timecall @timecall # or @timecall(immediate=True) def my_function(args, etc): pass
Finally, you may be interested in seeing line coverage for a single function
from profilehooks import coverage @coverage def my_function(args, etc): pass
Also functions can be available in Python console or module if run it with -m arg
$ python -m profilehooks >>> profile <function profile at 0x1005c6488> $ python -m profilehooks yourmodule
Full documentation is available through pydoc profilehooks after installation.
The home page for this module is http://mg.pov.lt/profilehooks. It has screensho, uh, that is, more examples.
