This documentation is a work in progress. If you'd like to participate in keeping this documentation fresh and accurate, contact us to be added as an editor.
A general overview of the PAPI-C library with a discussion of all major features and functionality. Includes usage examples and links to other useful information.
A technical reference for programmers of PAPI 4.x and higher, providing detailed information on each call in the Component PAPI library, including calling sequences and examples.
This technical reference documents the interface exported by a PAPI-C Component to the platform independent Framework. It serves as a development guide for production of new components. It is a work in progress. Please pardon our dust.
