x11perfcomp - X11 server performance comparison program


   x11perfcomp [ -r | -ro ] [ -l label_file ] files


   The  x11perfcomp  program  merges the output of several x11perf(1) runs
   into a nice tabular format.  It takes the results in each  file,  fills
   in  any  missing test results if necessary, and for each test shows the
   objects/second rate of each server.  If invoked  with  the  -r  or  -ro
   options,  it shows the relative performance of each server to the first

   Normally, x11perfcomp uses the first file specified to determine  which
   specific  tests it should report on.  Some (non-DEC :) servers may fail
   to  perform  all  tests.   In  this  case,  x11perfcomp   automatically
   substitutes  in  a  rate  of  0.0 objects/second.  Since the first file
   determines which tests to report on, this file must contain a  superset
   of the tests reported in the other files, else x11perfcomp will fail.

   You  can provide an explicit list of tests to report on by using the -l
   switch to specify a file of labels.  You can create  a  label  file  by
   using the -label option in x11perf.


   x11perfcomp accepts the options listed below:

   -r              Specifies  that the output should also include relative
                   server performance.

   -ro             Specifies that the output should include only  relative
                   server performance.

   -l label_file   Specifies a label file to use.


   There are no X defaults used by this program.

   Joel McCormack just munged them together a bit.
