Wing doesn't yet have integrated profiling support. It's something
we'ld like to add eventually although it's lower priority since it's
pretty easy to profile Python w/o IDE support. Also, it's often a good
idea to have a way to start/stop profiling in the shipped code for the
inevitable cases where something runs slowly only in the field.
In case it's useful, here is a quick example of using cProfile and
pstats to profile a call. This forms the basis of the
internal-profile-start and internal-profile-stop commands in Wing, which
let us get profiles from users (in our case the function passed to
runcall is a nested GUI event loop):
import cProfile, pstats
profiler = cProfile.Profile()
stats = pstats.Stats(profiler)
Showing both 'cumulative' and 'time' stats helps reveal hotspots in more
I hope this is useful...
