//
// 1) configure wxWidgets in release mode
// 2) make sure that HAVE_UNIX98_PRINTF is undefined (just #defining it to zero
// does not work; you must comment out the entire #define) in your setup.h;
// and also that wxUSE_PRINTF_POS_PARAMS is set to 1; this will force the
// use of wx's own implementation of wxVsnprintf()
// 3) compile wx
// 4) set wxTEST_WX_ONLY to 1 and compile tests as well
// 5) run "callgrind ./printfbench"
// 6) run "kcachegrind dump_file_generated_by_callgrind"
//
