<term>How do I compile my program for profiling without
overwriting the object files and <literal>hi</literal> files
I've already built?</term>
<listitem>
<para>You can select alternative suffixes for object files and
interface files, so you can have several builds of the same
code coexisting in the same directory. For example, to
compile with profiling, you might do this:</para>
<screen>ghc --make -prof -o foo-prof -osuf p.o -hisuf p.hi Main</screen>
<para>See <xref linkend="options-output"> for more details on
the <option>-osuf</option> and <option>-hisuf</option>
options.</para>
