I did at the time, and nobody could help me with gprof. I then tried
to use valgrind, but had no clue what to do or how it works, so just
gave up and used a high precision timer over sections of my code. :-)

Anyway, thank you for the link to valgrind usage - I managed to get it
working just fine. It gives a damn lot of information - now i just
need to figure out what everything kcachegrind shows me means. But I
see the valgrind website has a tutorial which i will work through.
Thanks again.
