Aspect::Library::NYTProf - Allows pointcut-targetted NYTProf profiling


  # Only profile code that runs in constructors
  use Aspect;
  aspect NYTProf => call qr/::new$/;
  # Using this profile pattern from the command line
  NYTPROF=start=no perl -d:NYTProf


Aspect::Library::NYTProf provides a pre-built Aspect library for doing Devel::NYTProf profiling on a targetted subset of your application.

This is implemented using the built-in DB::enable_profile() and DB::disable_profile() functions you might normally use with Devel::NYTProf, but allows for targetting the profiling using the full range of pointcuts available in Aspect.

For example, the following allows profiling of Foo::bar(), but only when called in scalar context.

  aspect NYTProf => call 'Foo::bar' & wantscalar;
