My experiences with "Shark"

Stuart suggested I learn a bit about "Shark" an optimizing tool for OSX.  Here are my experiences.  I followed along with this tutorial: Optimizing Noble Ape with Shark


Needed to reinstall (with my osx disk 1) Xcode.  Clicked the option to install CHUD

Compile - Pre Analysis

Need to compile the NobleApe Application... load up the project file and "build & Run"
Neat little program I guess, I left it running.


I opened shark, and clicked "Start" and let it do its thing

You do this "Run Program, run Shark Analysis" a few times with the tutorial explaining how the code of a certain function would change.


Shark helps you determine what parts of your code take the longest to run
