Function Documentation

◆ ATrace_beginSection()

void ATrace_beginSection ( const char *  sectionName)

Writes a tracing message to indicate that the given section of code has begun. This call must be followed by a corresponding call to endSection() on the same thread.

Note: At this time the vertical bar character '|' and newline character '
' are used internally by the tracing mechanism. If sectionName contains these characters they will be replaced with a space character in the trace.

◆ ATrace_endSection()

void ATrace_endSection ( )

Writes a tracing message to indicate that a given section of code has ended. This call must be preceeded by a corresponding call to beginSection(char*) on the same thread. Calling this method will mark the end of the most recently begun section of code, so care must be taken to ensure that beginSection / endSection pairs are properly nested and called from the same thread.

◆ ATrace_isEnabled()

bool ATrace_isEnabled ( )

Returns true if tracing is enabled. Use this signal to avoid expensive computation only necessary when tracing is enabled.
