+================

+NAME
+----
+tep_read_number_field - Reads a number from raw data.
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+--
+*#include <event-parse.h>*
+
+int *tep_read_number_field*(struct tep_format_field pass:[*]_field_, const void pass:[*]_data_, unsigned long long pass:[*]_value_);
+--
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+The _tep_read_number_field()_ function reads the value of the _field_ from the
+raw _data_ and stores it in the _value_. The function sets the _value_ according
+to the endianness of the raw data and the current machine and stores it in
+_value_.
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+The _tep_read_number_field()_ function retunrs 0 in case of success, or -1 in
+case of an error.
+
+EXAMPLE
+-------
+[source,c]
+--
+#include <event-parse.h>
+...
+struct tep_handle *tep = tep_alloc();
+...
+struct tep_event *event = tep_find_event_by_name(tep, "timer", "hrtimer_start");
+...
+void process_record(struct tep_record *record)
+{
+ unsigned long long pid;
+ struct tep_format_field *field_pid = tep_find_common_field(event, "common_pid");
+
+ if (tep_read_number_field(field_pid, record->data, &pid) != 0) {
+ /* Failed to get "common_pid" value */
+ }
+}
+...
+--
+FILES
