Sure will change accordingly.

Hmm looks good. Will change it.

Yes, BUT this needs to be changed now.

I found perf probe accepts glob wildcards(*, ?) and character classes like
[a-z]. But perf record only allow wildcards. So I can't use strisglob()
function.

Please let me know if that is wrong.

Hmm. yes, second part looks unnecessary.

Sure. I'll remove this warning and show all events as 'event addr@file'.
Please let me know if you want to list it differently.

Actually, I do that, but partially. Please see patch 6/7. It list all those
*existing* events which are being recorded.

"shift" function is needed. let me explain.

As we are allowing both, 'perf probe' as well as 'perf record' on SDT
events, there are two sources of events for 'perf record'
1. uprobe_events file
2. probe-cache

When perf fetches events from cache, it fetch all matching events,
no matter if any event already exists in uprobe_events or not.

Consider an example, There are 3 events with same name sdt_a:b
exists in 'test' binary.

$ readelf -n test
sdt_a:b @ addr 0x123
sdt_a:b @ addr 0x456
sdt_a:b @ addr 0x789

$ perf probe -x test sdt_a:b
/* Add all 3 events sdt_a:b sdt_a:b_1 and sdt_a:b_2 */
$ perf probe -d sdt_a:b
$ perf probe -d sdt_a:b_2

$ perf record sdt_a:b
/*
arr1 = probe_file__get_sdt_events();
{sdt_a:b_1 addr 0x456}

arr2 = get_sdt_events_from_cache();
{sdt_a:b addr 0x123, sdt_a:b addr 0x456, sdt_a:b addr 0x789}

Now, as sdt event of addr 0x456 already exists in arr1, it needs to
be reused and thus it needs to be removed from arr2. Removing
2nd element needs shifting of third element to 2nd position.
*/

I don't think it's easy to remove "shift" function. I can remove it but
that needs changes in existing infrastructure like fetch only those
events from cache which are not present in uprobe_events. But,
IMHO, it's not a good way to go.

Let me know if I misunderstood your point.

Thanks,
Ravi
