I admit I am a windows developer, floundering around on a MacOS - so please
forgive me.
This page:

says that I can type a command like this:
mono --profile=log program.exe

to log performance profiling information while the executable runs.

But when I try this command I get the following response:
2013-04-02 19:13:42.421 mono[1989:707] No Info.plist file in application
bundle or no NSPrincipalClass in the Info.plist file, exiting

I have also tried various permutations and combinations, including things

mono --profile=log Program.app/Contents/MacOS/Program

Which gives:
Cannot open assembly 'Program.app/Contents/MacOS/Program': File does not
contain a valid CIL image.
