SYNOPSIS

#include <event-parse.h>

enum tep_errno tep_parse_event(struct tep_handle *tep, const char *buf, unsigned long size, const char *sys);
enum tep_errno tep_parse_format(struct tep_handle *tep, struct tep_event **eventp, const char *buf, unsigned long size, const char *sys);

DESCRIPTION

The tep_parse_event() function parses the event format and creates an event structure to quickly parse raw data for a given event. The tep argument is the trace event parser context. The created event structure is stored in the tep context. The buf argument is a buffer with size, where the event format data is. The event format data can be taken from tracefs/events/…/…/format files. The sys argument is the system of the event.

The tep_parse_format() function does the same as tep_parse_event(). The only difference is in the extra eventp argument, where the newly created event structure is returned.

RETURN VALUE

Both tep_parse_event() and tep_parse_format() functions return 0 on success, or TEP_ERRNO__… in case of an error.
