No, we aren't writing this tool only for kernel developers exclusively,Do you really think that more kernel developers would use perf moreNot much. Is perf's target kernel developers exclusively? Who are
frequently if it had some GUI?
we writing this kernel for?
but that wasn't my question, it was badly formulated, sorry, I shouldn't
have included "kernel" in it :-\
Even for kernel developers there are advantages in a GUI, namelyOk, I agree with you about easier discoverability of features, path
that features are easily discovered, the amount of information is
easily controlled, and in that you can interact (not redo everything
from scratch every time you want to change something). The
difference between a curses based tool and a true GUI are minimal
for this audience.
shortened from report to annotate to starting the editor right at the
line where some event of interest happened,
will try to keep the
routines not much coupled with ncurses, but definetely ncurses will be
the first step.
