A programming tool for parallelism discovery and planning

Thank you for your interest in pyrprof!

pyrprof has been replaced by kremlin.

pyrprof is a parallel programming tool intended to help a programmer quickly discover parallelism in their programs. It outputs a list of code regions that is ordered by the potential speedup obtained from parallelization.

pyrprof provides a drop-in replacement for gcc that transparently instruments a program. It operates similarly to gprof in that the instrumented, compiled program is run normally and produces an additional profiling output file. pyrprof then takes this file as input.
