Save profiling results in HTML format



profsave saves the results produced by the MATLAB® Profiler in HTML format. First, the function executes profile("info") to access the structure containing the results. Then, it creates an HTML file summarizing the results, as well as a separate HTML file for each function listed in the FunctionTable field of the structure. See profile for more information on profiling results.

By default, profsave saves the files to the profile_results subfolder in your current folder.

profsave(profinfo) saves the profiling results specified by profinfo in HTML format. profinfo is the structure returned by an earlier call to profile("info").


profsave(profinfo,foldername) saves the HTML files to the folder specified by foldername. If the folder does not exist, the function creates it.
