OK, I was just playing around, I don't really have any experience of
profiling, so I found the tool that Apple made available and poked the
soffice process. Shark produces a lot of output and one can linked the
assembler instructions to the corresponding source code, inlcuding
outputting a nice graph (although I don't really see much point in it,
but maybe I haven't understood its full potential). However, the output
only seems to be of any use with another version of Shark itself, so
limited to the Mac platform.

I've been trying to get valgrind to work, but for some reason it fails
to start the office application. If I try, from within
/Applications/LibreOffice/Contents, :

valgrind --tool=memcheck --num-callers=50 --trace-children=yes
./MacOS/swriter 2>1 | tee /Users/alex/valgrind.log

It fails, and nothing is written to the log. If I remove the output to
log file instruction, I get an error on the console :

However, if I just try and start the office with :


the damn writer app starts up !!

My understanding so far from what I have read on using valgrind on
MacOSX is that it is fairly tricky, and not all of its functionality
available on other OSes is completely supported, so I'm a bit stuck at
the moment.
