SYNOPSIS

#include <event-parse.h>

struct tep_event *tep_find_event(struct tep_handle *tep, int id);
struct tep_event *tep_find_event_by_name(struct tep_handle *tep, const char *sys, const char *name);
struct tep_event *tep_find_event_by_record(struct tep_handle *tep, struct tep_record *record);

DESCRIPTION

This set of functions can be used to search for an event, based on a given criteria. All functions require a pointer to a tep, trace event parser context.

The tep_find_event() function searches for an event by given event id. The event ID is assigned dynamically and can be viewed in event’s format file, "ID" field.

The tep_find_event_by_name()_ function searches for an event by given event name, under the system sys. If the sys is NULL (not specified), the first event with name is returned.

The tep_find_event_by_record()_ function searches for an event from a given record.

RETURN VALUE

All these functions return a pointer to the found event, or NULL if there is no such event.
