+NAME
+----
+tep_find_function,tep_find_function_address - Find function name / start address.
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+--
+*#include <event-parse.h>*
+
+const char pass:[*]*tep_find_function*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_, unsigned long long _addr_);
+unsigned long long *tep_find_function_address*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_, unsigned long long _addr_);
+--
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+These functions can be used to find function name and start address, by given 
+address. The given address does not have to be exact, it will select the function 
+that would contain it.
+
+The _tep_find_function()_ function returns the function name, which contains the
+given address _addr_. The _tep_ argument is the trace event parser context.
+
+The _tep_find_function_address()_ function returns the function start address, 
+by given address _addr_. The _addr_ does not have to be exact, it will select the function 
+that would contain it. The _tep_ argument is the trace event parser context.
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+The _tep_find_function()_ function returns the function name, or NULL in case 
+it cannot be found.
+
+The _tep_find_function_address()_ function returns the function start address, 
+or 0 in case it cannot be found.
+
+EXAMPLE
+-------
+[source,c]
+--
+#include <event-parse.h>
+...
+struct tep_handle *tep = tep_alloc();
+...
+void show_function( unsigned long long addr)
+{
+	const char *fname = tep_find_function(tep, addr);
+	unsigned long long fstart = tep_find_function_address(tep, addr);
+	
+	/* addr is in function named fname, starting at fstart address, at offset (addr - fstart) */
+} 
+...
