Profiling F# Interactive

Postby object » Mon Jul 12, 2010 9:29 am

F# Interactive (and in general REPL-style tools) is an ideal entrance to performance profiling. What could be easier than to select a code block and send it right to a profiler that would come back with performance analysis report. Unfortunately it looks like existing profilers - and ANTS not being exception - don't have REPL support: you have to either attach a profiler to a process or specify and executable or Web application to profile.

So my question is whether there are any plans to extend ANTS profiler to better support REPL-style development, when developers typically treat code like script by writing and executing small code blocks. With current interest to functional and dynamic languages it's a big advantage for a profiler to support REPL mode. Is this feature considered by ANTS development team?

Thanks in advance

Thanks for that excellent suggestion. I will try and get a reply from product development as soon as possible.

And if you want a beta tester for this feature, you can count on me!

So, we don't apparently have any definite plans for this feature. You may find that our new "attach to process" feature works quite well for REPLs. We'll revisit this in time should it get more requests. Thanks again.
