+================

+NAME
+----
+tep_read_number - Reads a number from raw data.
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+--
+*#include <event-parse.h>*
+
+unsigned long long *tep_read_number*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_, const void pass:[*]_ptr_, int _size_);
+--
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+The _tep_read_number()_ function reads an integer from raw data, taking into 
+account the endianness of the raw data and the current host. The _tep_ argument 
+is the trace event parser context. The _ptr_ is a pointer to the raw data, where 
+the integer is, and the _size_ is the size of the integer. 
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+The _tep_read_number()_ function returns the integer in the byte order of 
+the current host. In case of an error, 0 is returned.
+
+EXAMPLE
+-------
+[source,c]
+--
+#include <event-parse.h>
+...
+struct tep_handle *tep = tep_alloc();
+...
+void process_record(struct tep_record *record)
+{
+	int data = tep_read_number(tep, record->data, 4);
+	/* Read the first 4 bytes of the record as integer */
+}
+...
