PAPI_strerror Class Reference

Returns a string describing the PAPI error code. More...

Detailed Description

C Interface:
#include <papi.h>
char * PAPI_strerror( int errorCode );
[in]code– the error code to interpret
Return values
*error– a pointer to the error string.
NULL– the input error code to PAPI_strerror() is invalid.

PAPI_strerror() returns a pointer to the error message corresponding to the error code code. If the call fails the function returns the NULL pointer. This function is not implemented in Fortran.

* int ret;
* int EventSet = PAPI_NULL;
* int native = 0x0;
* char error_str[PAPI_MAX_STR_LEN];
* ret = PAPI_create_eventset(&EventSet);
* if (ret != PAPI_OK)
* {
* fprintf(stderr, "PAPI error %d: %s\n", ret, PAPI_strerror(retval));
* exit(1);
* }
* // Add Total Instructions Executed to our EventSet
* ret = PAPI_add_event(EventSet, PAPI_TOT_INS);
* if (ret != PAPI_OK)
* {
* PAPI_perror( "PAPI_add_event");
* fprintf(stderr,"PAPI_error %d: %s\n", ret, error_str);
* exit(1);
* }
* // Start counting
* ret = PAPI_start(EventSet);
* if (ret != PAPI_OK) handle_error(ret);
