If you compile a program with the -g option, and run "nm" on
it, you will get a raw listing of the base information you
want here; piping the output to "awk" and "sort" should make
a pretty listing in the format you want. (i.e. to compute
running totals and/or group local variable names with their
enclosing function's name, etc.
