       PAPI_get_opt -

       Get PAPI library or event set options.


Detailed Description

       C Interface:
           #include <papi.h>
            int PAPI_get_opt(  int option, PAPI_option_t * ptr );

           option Defines the option to get. Possible values are briefly described in the table
           ptr Pointer to a structure determined by the selected option. See PAPI_option_t for a
           description of possible structures.

       Return values:
           PAPI_EINVAL The specified option or parameter is invalid.
           PAPI_ENOEVST The EventSet specified does not exist.
           PAPI_ECMP The option is not implemented for the current component.
           PAPI_ENOINIT PAPI has not been initialized.

       PAPI_get_opt() queries the options of the PAPI library or a specific event set created by
       PAPI_create_eventset. Some options may require that the eventset be bound to a component
       before they can execute successfully. This can be done either by adding an event or by
       explicitly calling PAPI_assign_eventset_component.

       Ptr is a pointer to the PAPI_option_t structure, which is actually a union of different
       structures for different options. Not all options require or return information in these
       structures. Each returns different values in the structure. Some options require a
       component index to be provided. These options are handled explicitly by the
       PAPI_get_cmp_opt() call.

           Some options, such as PAPI_DOMAIN and PAPI_MULTIPLEX are also available as separate
           entry points in both C and Fortran.

       The reader is encouraged to peruse the ctests code in the PAPI distribution for examples
       of usage of PAPI_set_opt.

       Possible values for the PAPI_get_opt option parameter

           OPTION          DEFINITION PAPI_DEFDOM     Get default counting domain for newly
           created event sets. Requires a component index.  PAPI_DEFGRN     Get default counting
           granularity. Requires a component index.  PAPI_DEBUG      Get the PAPI debug state and
           the debug handler. The debug state is specified in ptr->debug.level. The debug handler
           is specified in ptr->debug.handler.
                           For further information regarding debug states and the behavior of the
           handler, see PAPI_set_debug.  PAPI_MULTIPLEX  Get current multiplexing state for
           specified EventSet.  PAPI_DEF_ITIMER Get the type of itimer used in software
           multiplexing, overflowing and profiling.  PAPI_DEF_MPX_NS Get the sampling time slice
           in nanoseconds for multiplexing and overflow.  PAPI_DEF_ITIMER_NS  See
           PAPI_DEF_MPX_NS.  PAPI_ATTACH     Get thread or process id to which event set is
           attached. Returns TRUE if currently attached.  PAPI_CPU_ATTACH Get ptr->cpu.cpu_num
           and Attach state for EventSet specified in ptr->cpu.eventset.  PAPI_DETACH     Get
           thread or process id to which event set is attached. Returns TRUE if currently
           attached.  PAPI_DOMAIN     Get domain for EventSet specified in ptr->domain.eventset.
           Will error if eventset is not bound to a component.  PAPI_GRANUL     Get granularity
           for EventSet specified in ptr->granularity.eventset. Will error if eventset is not
           bound to a component.  PAPI_INHERIT        Get current inheritance state for specified
           EventSet.  PAPI_PRELOAD        Get LD_PRELOAD environment equivalent.  PAPI_CLOCKRATE
           Get clockrate in MHz.  PAPI_MAX_CPUS   Get number of CPUs.  PAPI_EXEINFO        Get
           Executable addresses for text/data/bss.  PAPI_HWINFO     Get information about the
           hardware.  PAPI_LIB_VERSION    Get the full PAPI version of the library.
           PAPI_MAX_HWCTRS Get number of counters. Requires a component index.  PAPI_MAX_MPX_CTRS
           Get maximum number of multiplexing counters. Requires a component index.
           PAPI_SHLIBINFO  Get shared library information used by the program.
           PAPI_COMPONENTINFO  Get the PAPI features the specified component supports. Requires a
           component index.
