Can someone please tell me what this is?

// doesn't come to here //apd_set_pprof_trace(); /* added by Shu for performance evaluation.
I've researched the
part of it and found that it appears to be related to PHP or Advanced PHP Debugger - even though I've read what I could find about it, I still don't get it... or more importantly understand what it is for... could someone please tell me?

'//' starts a comment line, while '/*' and '*/' delimit comments. based on the '/*' at the end of that code, i'm guessing the developer mis-matched the comment delimiters (ie. used */ "COMMENT" here for debugging /*).
EDIT: hitman has faster typing.

So are you saying that this isn't keylogging or spyware?
No, it isn't. It's just a utility that's built into php to help the programmer make his/her code better.

If the server knows your IP, then the programmer can acess it. It is used for a variety of applications...look at your posts in this thread...notice in the bottom right of each one an ip address is there? That's your IP. I can't see it, but you can. I can see mine, but you can't.
In php, you can access the IP of the requesting computer by using $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'].

in this case, the developer is not logging any information other than what environment you are viewing the site with, and any circumstances that could have led to a parsing problem. so in a word, yes, it does trace who is viewing that page. not your PERSONAL info though, simply your computer info for their own debugging information. this is what debugging is, and it is not a malicious habit. it is meant to track how errors occur, and consequently fix it (or clean up one's code, as hitman says).
EDIT: hitman types faster again, but i'm hoping my explanation helps as well.

That's basically the same thing you guys were saying, right?
