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

+NAME
+----
+tep_event_common_fields,tep_event_fields - Get a list of fields for an event.
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+--
+*#include <event-parse.h>*
+
+struct tep_format_field pass:[*]pass:[*]*tep_event_common_fields*(struct tep_event pass:[*]_event_);
+struct tep_format_field pass:[*]pass:[*]*tep_event_fields*(struct tep_event pass:[*]_event_);
+--
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+The _tep_event_common_fields()_ function returns an array of pointers to common 
+fields for the _event_. The array is allocated in the function and must be freed
+by free(). The last element of the array is NULL.
+
+The _tep_event_fields()_ function returns an array of pointers to event specific 
+fields for the _event_. The array is allocated in the function and must be freed
+by free(). The last element of the array is NULL.
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+Both _tep_event_common_fields()_ and _tep_event_fields()_ functions return
+an array of pointers to tep_format_field structures in case of success, or
+NULL in case of an error.
+
+EXAMPLE
+-------
+[source,c]
+--
+#include <event-parse.h>
+...
+struct tep_handle *tep = tep_alloc();
+...
+int i;
+struct tep_format_field **fields;
+struct tep_event *event = tep_find_event_by_name(tep, "kvm", "kvm_exit");
+if (event != NULL) {
+	fields = tep_event_common_fields(event);
+	if (fields != NULL) {
+		i = 0;
+		while (fields[i]) {
+			/* walk through the list of the common fields of the kvm_exit event */
+			i++;
+		}
+		free(fields);
+	}
+	fields = tep_event_fields(event);
+	if (fields != NULL) {
+		i = 0;
+		while (fields[i]) {
+			/* walk through the list of the event specific fields of the kvm_exit event */
+			i++;
+		}
+		free(fields);
+	}	
+}
