C++ Profiling

Can anyone tell me where I can get gprof++ for profiling programs that are compiled with aCC?

You need fileset
and any related patches

See below

gprof - display call graph profile data

gprof [options] [a.out [gmon.out...]] [shared_library

The gprof command produces an execution profile of C++, C, Pascal, and
FORTRAN programs. The effect of called routines is incorporated into
the profile of each caller. Profile data is taken from the call graph
profile file (gmon.out default) that is created by programs compiled
with the -G option of aCC, CC, cc, pc, and f77.
If you want truly to understand something, try to change it. (Kurt Lewin)
