The !timedbg Command: Show Internal Run Times

Syntax: !timedbg [y|n [-level] [logfile]]
This command enables or disables printing of internal timing information for display and DRC operations, and others.

If given with no arguments, a message is printed on the prompt line indicating whether or not timing info is being printed.

If the first argument is ``y'' or ``on'', timing information will be printed. This can be followed by an optional level which is an integer (following a hyphen) that sets the maximum level of sub-timing info to print. If 0, only the ``top level'' timing results are shown. If a file name appears, it gives a path to a file where the information will be written. Otherwise, or if the file can't be opened, output goes to the console window.

If the first argument is ``n'' or ``off'', timing information will not be printed. This has no effect unless timing info printing is enabled.

In the output, indentation is used to indicate the ``level'' of the measurement. Times printed for a given level include all of the times listed above at a greater indentation level after a previous line at the same level. A greater indentation level indicates a timing measurement of a sub-component of the operation.
