=head1 NAME

Devel::Valgrind::Massif::OutputParser - Parse the output from massif just like

=head1 VERSION

version 0.005


  use Devel::Valgrind::Massif::OutputParser;
  my $data;

  # so, you could do this:
  my $data0 = Devel::Valgrind::Massif::OutputParser->parse_file($some_file);
  my $data1 = Devel::Valgrind::Massif::OutputParser->parse($some_fh);

  # or you could do this:
  my $mp = Devel::Valgrind::Massif::OutputParser->new();
  my $data2 = $mp->parse_file($some_file);
  my $data3 = $mp->parse($some_fh);

=head1 METHODS

=head2 new()

While you can call the other methods as class methods, this is here to make OO
folk happier, and to somewhat appease the "dammit these package names are too 
damned long" people, (like me) too.

  my $mp = Devel::Valgrind::Massif::OutputParser->new();

=head2 parse_file($file_name)

A convenience method, provided because has it, too.

$file_name is a string that is the path to an output file created by running massif.

The output is the same data structure that would be returned from ->parse().

=head2 parse($fh)

$fh is a readable file handle, or something that can behave like one.

The main method for this package, it reads the output data from massif through
the given file handle and returns a perl data structure that mirrors the one
output by in python.
