The examples below demonstrate different ways in which the profiler can be configured and code profiled so as to produce different sets of results. In each example, the following piece of code is profiled:
(dotimes (x 1000)
This is a simple form which makes some CAPI objects.

Notice that this time there are many more functions which appear in the profile results.
Add the Description area by clicking the Description >> button if you have not already done so.
Notice that most of the functions appearing on the stack are in the
CAPI package. It is worth profiling a few functions explicitly, and removing unwanted packages from the list of packages to profile.

Type the name of each function and press
Return or click
to add it to the list.
Now remove the unwanted packages from the list of packages to profile, as follows:
Notice that the four functions in the
COMMON-LISP package are still being profiled, even though you are no longer profiling all functions from that package by default.
