I wanted to profile a chunk of code. So, in RHIDE I set the Link for
Profiling option on, and I set the compiler debugging options "-pg" flag
on, and I recompiled the file with the area to profile and linked and ran
it. It created a file named gmon.out. Then I launched a dos shell, and
entered gprof gmon.out, and it said:

c:/djgpp/bin/gprof.exe: gmon.out: not in a.out format

So, obviously wither a bug in djgpp causes it to output the profiling data
in the wrong format, or a bug in RHIDE causes the profiling options not to
work correctly, or else a bug in gprof causes it not to recognise the
format, or not to be able to understand all the right formats.
