       papi_decode [-ah]


       papi_decode is a PAPI utility program that converts the PAPI presets for the existing
       library into a comma separated value format that can then be viewed or modified in
       spreadsheet applications or text editors, and can be supplied to PAPI_encode_events (3) as
       a way of adding or modifying event definitions for specialized applications. The format
       for the csv output consists of a line of field names, followed by a blank line, followed
       by one line of comma separated values for each event contained in the preset table. A
       portion of this output (for Pentium 4) is shown below:

       *       name,derived,postfix,short_descr,long_descr,note,[native,...]
       *       PAPI_L1_ICM,NOT_DERIVED,,"L1I cache misses","Level 1 instruction cache misses",,BPU_fetch_request_TCMISS
       *       PAPI_L2_TCM,NOT_DERIVED,,"L2 cache misses","Level 2 cache misses",,BSQ_cache_reference_RD_2ndL_MISS_WR_2ndL_MISS
       *       PAPI_TLB_DM,NOT_DERIVED,,"Data TLB misses","Data translation lookaside buffer misses",,page_walk_type_DTMISS
