One would like to think that most programmers understand what a profiler is by now and that they use a profiler in everyday programming. Even when a program appears to be efficient, an inquisitive programmer will run a program and study the profiling results. In doing so he may find that parts of his code are not as efficient as he hoped, and, as a consequence of this, the code may be changed, re-compiled, and profiled once more. The results, one hopes, are an improvement on the original.
