Profile generator for C/C++ programs

FunctionCheck is a profile generator for C/C++ programs. It uses the gcc '-finstrument-functions' feature to track each function entry and exit. It computes local and total times in functions, the number of calls, the average time per call, and function calls. It can also count time spent in sub-functions not compiled with '-finstrument-functions'. The time balance between functions is always respected. It also can trace memory allocations and report on memory leaks, showing the call stack leading up to the allocation of the leaked blocks.
