source|src { filename | function-name } [ N]

Write out annotated source code for either the specified file or the file containing the specified function. The file in either case must be in a directory in your path. If the source was compiled with the GNU Fortran compiler, you must add two underscore characters after the function name as it appears in the source.

Use the optional parameter N (a positive integer) only in those cases where the file or function name is ambiguous; in this case, the Nth possible choice is used. If you provide an ambiguous name without the numeric specifier, the er_print utility prints a list of possible object-file names. If the name you gave was a function, the name of the function is appended to the object-file name, and the number that represents the value of N for that object file is also printed.

The function name can also be specified as function”file” , where file is used to specify an alternate source context for the function. Immediately following the first instruction, an index line is added for the function. Index lines are displayed as text within angle brackets in the following form:

<Function: f_name>

The default source context for any function is defined as the source file to which the first instruction in that function is attributed. It is normally the source file compiled to produce the object module containing the function. Alternate source contexts consist of other files that contain instructions attributed to the function. Such contexts include instructions coming from include files and instructions from functions inlined into the named function. If there are any alternate source contexts, include a list of extended index lines at the beginning of the default source context to indicate where the alternate source contexts are located in the following form:

<Function: f, instructions from source file src.h>

Note -  If you use the -source argument when invoking the er_print utility on the command line, the backslash escape character must prepend the file quotes. In other words, the function name is of the form function\”file\”. The backslash is not required, and should not be used, when the er_print utility is in interactive mode.

Normally, when the default source context is used, metrics are shown for all functions from that file. Referring to the file explicitly shows metrics only for the named function.
