+================
+
+NAME
+----
+tep_parse_event, tep_parse_format - Parse the event format information
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+--
+*#include <event-parse.h>*
+
+enum tep_errno *tep_parse_event*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_, const char pass:[*]_buf_, unsigned long _size_, const char pass:[*]_sys_);
+enum tep_errno *tep_parse_format*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_, struct tep_event pass:[*]pass:[*]_eventp_, const char pass:[*]_buf_, unsigned long _size_, const char pass:[*]_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.
+
+EXAMPLE
+-------
+[source,c]
+--
+#include <event-parse.h>
+...
+struct tep_handle *tep = tep_alloc();
+...
+char *buf;
+int size;
+struct tep_event *event = NULL;
+buf = read_file("/sys/kernel/tracing/events/ftrace/print/format", &size);
+if (tep_parse_event(tep, buf, size, "ftrace") != 0) {
+ /* Failed to parse the ftrace print format */
+}
+
+if (tep_parse_format(tep, &event, buf, size, "ftrace") != 0) {
+ /* Failed to parse the ftrace print format */
+}
+...
