Gambit scheme lacks a profiler that can profile scheme with embedded C code. (There's statprof, but unfortunately it doesn't profile embeded C). I needed to do this pretty desperately for my triple indexing stuff so I've written a simple macro which takes wall clock timings of functions and accumulates them.
You replace 'define' with 'define-timed' in the functions you want profiled, and then the time spent in each function is accumulated in a global hash table. It's not pretty, but it's simple.
The macro needs some supporting code (which I keep in a seperate module so that it can be compiled in order to minimise overhead). :
(define *timerhash* (make-table)) ;;; call this before running the code (define (reset-timer) (set! *timerhash* (make-table))) ;;; adds the time spent in the thunk to an entry in the hashtable (define (accum-time name thunk) (let* ((timebefore (real-time)) (res (thunk))) (table-set! *timerhash* name (let ((current (table-ref *timerhash* name '(0 0)))) (list (+ (car current) (- (real-time) timebefore)) (+ (cadr current) 1)))) res)) ;;; call this afterwards to get the times (define (get-times) (map (lambda (e) (list (first e) (* 1000 (second e)) (third e))) (sort-list (table->list *timerhash*) (lambda (a b) (> (second a) (second b))))))
And here's the macro. It basically just wraps the function body in a call to 'accum-time':
(define-syntax define-timed (syntax-rules () ((define-timed (name . args) body ...) (define (name . args) (accum-time 'name (lambda () body ...))))))
Here's some example output. The first number is the accumulated milliseconds spent in the function, and the second is the number of times it was called.

Hmmm.. I really need to get something to html pretty print the scheme code.
