I ment I didn't know how to do profiling in this case, to find out if
the program was cpu or disk bound, although if I would have sit down
and thought for 5 seconds it was obvious.

Profiling in general is another fish and I consider myself able to
spot the places where my programs consumes cpu cycles.
