       PAPI_set_opt -

       Set PAPI library or event set options.


Detailed Description

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

           option Defines the option to be set. Possible values are briefly described in the
           table below.
           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_EISRUN The EventSet is currently counting events.
           PAPI_ECMP The option is not implemented for the current component.
           PAPI_ENOINIT PAPI has not been initialized.
           PAPI_EINVAL_DOM Invalid domain has been requested.

       PAPI_set_opt() changes the options of the PAPI library or a specific EventSet 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 requires different values to be set. Some options require a component
       index to be provided. These options are handled implicitly through the option structures.

           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_set_opt option parameter

           OPTION          DEFINITION PAPI_DEFDOM     Set default counting domain for newly
           created event sets. Requires a
                           component index.  PAPI_DEFGRN     Set default counting granularity.
           Requires a component index.  PAPI_DEBUG      Set 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
           Enable specified EventSet for multiplexing.  PAPI_DEF_ITIMER Set the type of itimer
           used in software multiplexing, overflowing
                           and profiling.  PAPI_DEF_MPX_NS Set the sampling time slice in
           nanoseconds for multiplexing and overflow.  PAPI_DEF_ITIMER_NS See PAPI_DEF_MPX_NS.
           PAPI_ATTACH     Attach EventSet specified in ptr->attach.eventset to thread or process
                           specified in in ptr->attach.tid.  PAPI_CPU_ATTACH Attach EventSet
           specified in ptr->cpu.eventset to cpu specified in in
                           ptr->cpu.cpu_num.  PAPI_DETACH     Detach EventSet specified in
           ptr->attach.eventset from any thread
                           or process id.  PAPI_DOMAIN     Set domain for EventSet specified in
                           Will error if eventset is not bound to a component.  PAPI_GRANUL
           Set granularity for EventSet specified in ptr->granularity.eventset.
                           Will error if eventset is not bound to a component.  PAPI_INHERIT
           Enable or disable inheritance for specified EventSet.  PAPI_DATA_ADDRESS   Set data
           address range to restrict event counting for EventSet specified
                           in ptr->addr.eventset. Starting and ending addresses are specified in
                           ptr->addr.start and ptr->addr.end, respectively. If exact addresses
                           cannot be instantiated, offsets are returned in ptr->addr.start_off
                           ptr->addr.end_off. Currently implemented on Itanium only.
           PAPI_INSTR_ADDRESS  Set instruction address range as described above. Itanium only.
