As shown in the HTML report attached, in code such as: 1 if (sleep(2) || $bool) { 2 sleep 1; 3 } Line (1) is reported as taking 3 seconds and line 2 is reported as never being run. In more complex code, where $bool can be true or false, this means that it is unclear how many times line (2) was run (ie. how many times the predicate was true.) I tested this with Devel::NYTProf 4.05 and 4.06, using perl 5.10.1, running on Debian Linux with kernel version 2.6.26-2-amd64.
