SYNOPSIS

#include <event-parse.h>
#include <trace-seq.h>

int tep_get_any_field_val(struct trace_seq *s, struct tep_event *event, const char *name, struct tep_record *record, unsigned long long *val, int err);
int tep_get_common_field_val(struct trace_seq *s, struct tep_event *event, const char *name, struct tep_record *record, unsigned long long *val, int err);
int tep_get_field_val(struct trace_seq *s, struct tep_event *event, const char *name, struct tep_record *record, unsigned long long *val, int err);
void *tep_get_field_raw(struct trace_seq *s, struct tep_event *event, const char *name, struct tep_record *record, int *len, int err);

DESCRIPTION

These functions can be used to find a field and retrieve its value.

The tep_get_any_field_val() function searches in the record for a field with name, part of the event. If the field is found, its value is stored in val. If there is an error and err is not zero, then an error string is written into s.

The tep_get_common_field_val() function does the same as tep_get_any_field_val(), but searches only in the common fields. This works for any event as all events include the common fields.

The tep_get_field_val() function does the same as tep_get_any_field_val(), but searches only in the event specific fields.

The tep_get_field_raw() function searches in the record for a field with name, part of the event. If the field is found, a pointer to where the field exists in the record’s raw data is returned. The size of the data is stored in len. If there is an error and err is not zero, then an error string is written into s.

RETURN VALUE

The tep_get_any_field_val(), tep_get_common_field_val() and tep_get_field_val() functions return 0 on success, or -1 in case of an error.

The tep_get_field_raw() function returns a pointer to field’s raw data, and places the length of this data in len. In case of an error NULL is returned.
