Commit Message

Tzvetomir Stoyanov Nov. 27, 2018, 3:42 p.m. UTC
This patch adds initial support for libtraceevent man pages -
Documentation directory, templates, configurations, Makefiles.
The first man page is also part of the patch - summary of the
library and all its APIs. Building of the documentation is
integrated into the libtraceevent build process, new targets are
added to its Makefile:
make doc
make doc-clean
make doc-install
make doc-uninstall

+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+The libtraceevent(3) library provides APIs to access kernel tracepoint events,
+located in the debugfs file system under the tracing/events directory.
+
+ENVIRONMENT
+-----------
+[verse]
+--
+TRACEEVENT_PLUGIN_DIR
+	Additional plugin directory. All shared object files, located in this directory will be loaded as traceevent plugins.
+--
+
+FILES
+-----
+[verse]
+--
+*event-parse.h*
+	Header file to include in order to have access to the library APIs.
+*trace-seq.h*
+	Header file to include in order to have access to trace sequences related APIs.
+	Trace sequences are used to allow a function to call several other functions 
+	to create a string of data to use.
+*-ltraceevent*
+	Linker switch to add when building a program that uses the library.
