+NAME
+----
+tep_find_common_field,tep_find_field,tep_find_any_field - Search for a field in an event. 
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+--
+*#include <event-parse.h>*
+
+struct tep_format_field pass:[*]*tep_find_common_field*(struct tep_event pass:[*]_event_, const char pass:[*]_name_);
+struct tep_format_field pass:[*]*tep_find_field*(struct tep_event_ormat pass:[*]_event_, const char pass:[*]_name_);
+struct tep_format_field pass:[*]*tep_find_any_field*(struct tep_event pass:[*]_event_, const char pass:[*]_name_);
+--
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+These functions search for a field with given name in an event.
+
+The _tep_find_common_field()_ function searches for a common field with _name_ 
+in the _event_.
+
+The _tep_find_field()_ function searches for an event specific field with
+_name_ in the _event_.
+
+The _tep_find_any_field()_ function searches for any field with _name_ in the 
+_event_.
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+The _tep_find_common_field(), _tep_find_field()_ and _tep_find_any_field()_
+functions return a pointer to the found field, or NULL in case there is no field
+with the requested name.
+
+EXAMPLE
+-------
+[source,c]
+--
+#include <event-parse.h>
+...
+struct tep_handle *tep = tep_alloc();
+...
+struct tep_event *event = tep_find_event_by_name(tep, "timer", "hrtimer_start");
+...
+	struct tep_format_field *field;
+
+	field = tep_find_common_field(event, "common_pid");
+	if (field == NULL) {
+		/* Cannot find "common_pid" common field in the event */
+	}
+
+	field = tep_find_field(event, "softexpires");
+	if (field == NULL) {
+		/* Cannot find "softexpires" event specific field in the event */
+	}
+	
+	field = tep_find_any_field(event, "mode");
+	if (field == NULL) {
+		/* Cannot find "mode" field in the event */
+	}
+...
