+NAME
+----
+tep_get_first_event,tep_get_events_count - Access events. 
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+--
+*#include <event-parse.h>*
+
+struct tep_event pass:[*]*tep_get_first_event*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_);
+int *tep_get_events_count*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_);
+--
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+The _tep_get_first_event()_ function returns a pointer to the first event. As events are 
+stored in an array, this function returns the pointer to the beginning 
+of the array. The _tep_ argument is trace event parser context. 
+
+The _tep_get_events_count()_ function returns the number of the events 
+in the array. The _tep_ argument is trace event parser context.
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+The _tep_get_first_event()_ returns a pointer to the first event. NULL is 
+returned in case of error, or in case there are no events.
+
+The _tep_get_events_count()_ returns the number of the events. 0 is 
+returned in case of error, or in case there are no events.
+
+EXAMPLE
+-------
+[source,c]
+--
+#include <event-parse.h>
+...
+struct tep_handle *tep = tep_alloc();
+...
+int i,count = tep_get_events_count(tep);
+struct tep_event *event, *events = tep_get_first_event(tep);
+
+if (events == NULL) {
+	/* There are no events */
+} else {
+	for (i=0; i<count; i++) {
+		event = (events+i);
+		/* process events[i] */
+	}
+}
