+================
+
+NAME
+----
+tep_get_event, tep_get_first_event, tep_get_events_count - Access events.
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+--
+*#include <event-parse.h>*
+
+struct tep_event pass:[*]*tep_get_event*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_, int _index_);
+struct tep_event pass:[*]*tep_get_first_event*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_);
+int *tep_get_events_count*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_);
+--
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+The _tep_get_event()_ function returns a pointer to event at the given _index_.
+The _tep_ argument is trace event parser context, the _index_ is the index of
+the requested event.
+
+The _tep_get_first_event()_ function returns a pointer to the first event.
+As events are stored in an array, this function returns the pointer to the
+beginning of the array. The _tep_ argument is trace event parser context.
+
+The _tep_get_events_count()_ function returns the number of the events
+in the array. The _tep_ argument is trace event parser context.
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+The _tep_get_event()_ returns a pointer to the event located at _index_.
+NULL is returned in case of error, in case there are no events or _index_ is
+out of range.
+
+The _tep_get_first_event()_ returns a pointer to the first event. NULL is
+returned in case of error, or in case there are no events.
+
+The _tep_get_events_count()_ returns the number of the events. 0 is
+returned in case of error, or in case there are no events.
+
+EXAMPLE
+-------
+[source,c]
+--
+#include <event-parse.h>
+...
+struct tep_handle *tep = tep_alloc();
+...
+int i,count = tep_get_events_count(tep);
+struct tep_event *event, *events = tep_get_first_event(tep);
+
+if (events == NULL) {
+ /* There are no events */
+} else {
+ for (i = 0; i < count; i++) {
+ event = (events+i);
+ /* process events[i] */
+ }
+
+ /* Get the last event */
+ event = tep_get_event(tep, count-1);
+}
