+================
+
+NAME
+----
+tep_filter_copy,tep_filter_compare - Copy / compare operations with event filters.
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+--
+*#include <event-parse.h>*
+
+int *tep_filter_copy*(struct tep_event_filter pass:[*]_dest_, struct tep_event_filter pass:[*]_source_);
+int *tep_filter_compare*(struct tep_event_filter pass:[*]_filter1_, struct tep_event_filter pass:[*]_filter2_);
+--
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+The _tep_filter_copy()_ function copies a _source_ filter into a _dest_ filter.
+
+The _tep_filter_compare()_ function compares two filers - _filter1_ and _filter2_.
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+The _tep_filter_copy()_ function returns 0 on success or -1 if not all rules
+ were copied.
+ 
+The _tep_filter_compare()_ function returns 1 if the two filters hold the same 
+content, or 0 if they do not.
+
+EXAMPLE
+-------
+[source,c]
+--
+#include <event-parse.h>
+...
+struct tep_handle *tep = tep_alloc();
+...
+struct tep_event_filter *filter1 = tep_filter_alloc(tep);
+struct tep_event_filter *filter2 = tep_filter_alloc(tep);
+...
+if (tep_filter_copy(filter1, filter2) != 0) {
+	/* Failed to copy filter2 in filter1 */
+}
+...
+if (tep_filter_compare(filter1, filter2) != 1) {
+	/* Both filters are different */
+}
+...
