To generate a time and allocation profile, give one of the
following RTS options to the compiled program when you run it (RTS
options should be enclosed between
-p option produces a standard
time profile report. It is written
into the file
-P option produces a more

data as well. (Not used much.)
-pa option produces the most detailed
report containing all cost centres in addition to the actual time
and allocation data.
Sets the interval that the RTS clock ticks at, which is also the sampling interval of the time and allocation profile. The default is 0.02 seconds.
