My profiler package, as described in the last Mathematica Journal (Volume 5,
Number 3), is now available. The package is written entirely in Mathematica,
so it works on all platforms.

In addition to the package itself (Profiler.m), there is documentation in the
form of a Mathematica notebook, The documentation has a
"Quick Start" section so you don't have to slog through the whole manual.

These two files are not yet on MathSource proper, but they can be obtained by
anonymous FTP to They are in the pub/outgoing directory.

Those of you who have been waiting for the package to become available, I thank
you for your patience.
