what is the definition of sub-functions in the hotshot profiler? and just
as important what is not sub-functions

from the output I can see that functions I made and functions in
/usr/lib/python2.4/textwrap.py is considered sub-functions, but I call a
lot of other functions in the python library and they are not in the
output, so how come textwrap is?


--code

import hotshot, hotshot.stats
prof = hotshot.Profile("openAnswerWindow.prof")
prof.runcall(self.openAnswerWindow)
prof.close()
stats = hotshot.stats.load("openAnswerWindow.prof")
stats.sort_stats('time', 'calls')
stats.print_stats()

--output
