Out of general interest, can anyone tell what this is? Wikipedia has a lot to say about compile time optimization, but I can't find noob prove info on the other.

edit: Ah

Cross-procedure tracing implies finding frequently executing paths in a program that span one or more procedures. A runtime optimizer detects such paths and optimizes them to improve overall program performance.
