|Component overview||Example component code with 3 counters|
This component has three counters, one that always returns 0, one that returns a constant, one that returns an auto-incrementing value.
While it works as is, there are still some improvements that can be made: * PAPI_write() should be implemented * auto-increment counter should only increment when it itself is being read, and not increment whenever any of the example counters are read. Both of the above will make the component more complicated, but might help writers of new components.
