Wing doesn't yet have a profiler built in, so you'll need to use
the hotshot module that is included with Python.  Here's a simple
example of profiling a single function based on what we run when
we want to profile Wing itself:

def Run(a, b):
   """The thing you want to profile"""
   for i in range(a, b):
     print i

def Profile():
   """ Run w/ profiler. """

   print 'Starting profile'

   import hotshot, hotshot.stats
   prof = hotshot.Profile("profile.prof")
   prof.runcall(Run, 1, 2)

   print 'Profile completed'

   stats = hotshot.stats.load("profile.prof")
   stats.sort_stats('time', 'calls')

Hope that helps...
