Hello All,

I am planning to do a workout on  Dynamically Tracing KDE4
applications with DTrace

The env will be KDE4 on Solaris Express. The only other OS which has
DTrace as of now is OS X ( I think the FreeBSD guys are working on
porting it as well).
I'll write probes to dynamicaly instrument 1) QObject 2) KHTML library

Mind you, once probes are written for a particular thing, a *running,
non-deug , ie release application can be instrumented at runtime using

I will be doing the workout with the OpenSolaris track.

As always, suggestions are more than welcome.
