+tep_strerror - Returns a string describing regular errno and tep error number.
+*#include <event-parse.h>*
+int *tep_strerror*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_, enum tep_errno _errnum_, char pass:[*]_buf_, size_t _buflen_);
+The _tep_strerror()_ function converts tep error number into a human
+readable string.
+The _tep_ argument is trace event parser context. The _errnum_ is a regular
+errno, defined in errno.h, or a tep error number. The string, describing this
+error number is copied in the _buf_ argument. The _buflen_ argument is
+the size of the _buf_.
+It as a thread safe wrapper around strerror_r(). The library function has two
+different behaviors - POSIX and GNU specific. The _tep_strerror()_ API always
+behaves as the POSIX version - the error string is copied in the user supplied
+The _tep_strerror()_ function returns 0, if a valid _errnum_ is passed and the
+string is copied into _buf_. If _errnum_ is not a valid error number,
+-1 is returned and _buf_ is not modified.
+#include <event-parse.h>
+struct tep_handle *tep = tep_alloc();
+char buf[32];
+char *pool = calloc(1, 128);
+if (tep == NULL) {
+ tep_strerror(tep, TEP_ERRNO__MEM_ALLOC_FAILED, buf, 32);
+ printf ("The pool is not initialized, %s", buf);
+ Header file to include in order to have access to the library APIs.
+ Linker switch to add when building a program that uses the library.
