Re: gprof cannot find symbols in a MIPS IRIX a.out

Hi Daniel,

 I'm using the IRIX linker. Would there be a way to make gprof
 read the dynamic symbol table instead? I tried to call
 bfd_get_dynamic_symtab_upper_bound() and bfd_canonicalize_dynamic_symtab()
 instead of the currently existing
 bfd_get_symtab_upper_bound() and bfd_canonicalize_symtab() - but that
 does not work.

Thanks & Regards.
