(We will keep this page as it is right now, as the profiler does not exist in Bennu yet.)

The Fenix profiler is a handy debugging tool. It shows how much power is needed for certain systems of Fenix, most particularly the drawing and the interpreting.

To use the profiler, run in debug mode by compiling your program in FXC.exe with the argument "-g", and then show it in-program with ALT+P.

Shortcuts:

ALT-P - Show/hide the Fenix profiler
ALT-R - Resets the profile history of the Fenix Profiler.
ALT-S - Activate/Deactivate the Fenix Profiler.

Example

Process Main()
Begin

    // To make sure the profiler is updated every frame
    restore_type = COMPLETE_RESTORE;

    A();

    Loop
        frame;
    End

End

Process A()
Begin
    Loop
        frame;
    End
End

Used in example: restore_type, process, frame
