+NAME
+----
+tep_filter_match - Tests if a record matches a filter.
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+--
+*#include <event-parse.h>*
+
+enum tep_errno *tep_filter_match*(struct tep_event_filter pass:[*]_filter_, struct tep_record pass:[*]_record_);
+--
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+The _tep_filter_match()_ function tests if a _record_ matches given _filter_.
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+The _tep_filter_match()_ function returns _tep_errno_, according to the result:
+[verse]
+--
+_pass:[TEP_ERRNO__FILTER_MATCH]_	- filter found for event, the record matches.
+_pass:[TEP_ERRNO__FILTER_MISS]_		- filter found for event, the record does not match.
+_pass:[TEP_ERRNO__FILTER_NOT_FOUND]_	- no filter found for record's event.
+_pass:[TEP_ERRNO__NO_FILTER]_		- no rules in the filter.
+--
+or any other _tep_errno_, if an error occurred during the test.
+
+EXAMPLE
+-------
+[source,c]
+--
+#include <event-parse.h>
+...
+struct tep_handle *tep = tep_alloc();
+struct tep_event_filter *filter = tep_filter_alloc(tep);
+...
+void process_record(struct tep_record *record)
+{
+	switch (tep_filter_match(filter, record)) {
+	case TEP_ERRNO__FILTER_MATCH:
+		/* The filter matches the record */
+		break;
+	case TEP_ERRNO__FILTER_MISS:
+		/* The filter does not match the record */
+		break;
+	case TEP_ERRNO__FILTER_NOT_FOUND:
+		/* No filter found for record's event */
+		break;
+	case TEP_ERRNO__NO_FILTER:
+		/* There are no rules in the filter */
+		break
+	default:
+		/* An error occurred during the test */
+		break;	
+	}
+}
