       cg_annotate - post-processing tool for Cachegrind

       cg_annotate [options] cachegrind-out-file [source-files...]

       cg_annotate takes an output file	produced by the	Valgrind tool
       Cachegrind and prints the information in	an easy-to-read	form.

       -h --help
	   Show	the help message.

	   Show	the version number.

       --show=A,B,C [default: all, using order in cachegrind.out.<pid>]
	   Specifies which events to show (and the column order). Default is
	   to use all present in the cachegrind.out.<pid> file (and use	the
	   order in the	file). Useful if you want to concentrate on, for
	   example, I cache misses (--show=I1mr,ILmr), or data read misses
	   (--show=D1mr,DLmr), or LL data misses (--show=DLmr,DLmw). Best used
	   in conjunction with --sort.

       --sort=A,B,C [default: order in cachegrind.out.<pid>]
	   Specifies the events	upon which the sorting of the
	   function-by-function	entries	will be	based.

       --threshold=X [default: 0.1%]
	   Sets	the threshold for the function-by-function summary. A function
	   is shown if it accounts for more than X% of the counts for the
	   primary sort	event. If auto-annotating, also	affects	which files
	   are annotated.

	   Note: thresholds can	be set for more	than one of the	events by
	   appending any events	for the	--sort option with a colon and a
	   number (no spaces, though). E.g. if you want	to see each function
	   that	covers more than 1% of LL read misses or 1% of LL write
	   misses, use this option:


       --show-percs=<no|yes> [default: yes]
	   When	enabled, a percentage is printed next to all event counts.
	   This	helps gauge the	relative importance of each function and line.

       --auto=<no|yes> [default: yes]
	   When	enabled, automatically annotates every file that is mentioned
	   in the function-by-function summary that can	be found. Also gives a
	   list	of those that couldn't be found.

       --context=N [default: 8]
	   Print N lines of context before and after each annotated line.
	   Avoids printing large sections of source files that were not
	   executed. Use a large number	(e.g. 100000) to show all source

       -I<dir> --include=<dir> [default: none]
	   Adds	a directory to the list	in which to search for files. Multiple
	   -I/--include	options	can be given to	add multiple directories.
