as part of the libtraceevent APIs.

+NAME
+----
+tep_filter_event_has_trivial,tep_update_trivial,tep_filter_clear_trivial - Check / update / clear trivial rules of given filter.
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+--
+*#include <event-parse.h>*
+
+enum *tep_filter_trivial_type* {
+	_TEP_FILTER_TRIVIAL_FALSE_,
+	_TEP_FILTER_TRIVIAL_TRUE_,
+	_TEP_FILTER_TRIVIAL_BOTH_,
+};
+
+int *tep_filter_event_has_trivial*(struct tep_event_filter pass:[*]_filter_, int _event_id_, enum tep_filter_trivial_type _type_);
+int *tep_update_trivial*(struct tep_event_filter pass:[*]_dest_, struct tep_event_filter pass:[*]_source_, enum tep_filter_trivial_type _type_);
+int *tep_filter_clear_trivial*(struct tep_event_filter pass:[*]_filter_, enum tep_filter_trivial_type _type_);

+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+The _tep_filter_event_has_trivial()_ function checks if the event with 
+_event_id_ contains a trivial _filter_ of _type_.
+
+The _tep_update_trivial()_ function updates the trivial rules with the given 
+filter. It scans _dest_ for trivial events matching _type_ to replace with 
+the _source_.
+
+The _tep_filter_clear_trivial()_ function clears TRUE and FALSE rules. 
+It removes rules in the _filter_ that only contain a given _type_ boolean arg.
+
+The trivial _type_, used as argument of these functions can be:
+[verse]
+--
+	_TEP_FILTER_TRIVIAL_FALSE_	- TRUE
+	_TEP_FILTER_TRIVIAL_TRUE_	- FALSE
+	_TEP_FILTER_TRIVIAL_BOTH_	- TRUE or FALSE
+
+--
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+The _tep_filter_event_has_trivial()_ function returns 1 if the event contains 
+a matching trivial type, otherwise 0.
+
+The _tep_update_trivial()_ function  returns 0 on success, or -1 if there was 
+a problem updating, but events may have still been updated on error.
+
+The _tep_filter_clear_trivial()_ function returns 0 on success, or -1 if there 
+was a problem.
+
+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_event_has_trivial(filter1, 1857,TEP_FILTER_TRIVIAL_FALSE) == 0) {
+	/* There are FALSE rules in filer1 for the event 1857 */
+}
+
+if (tep_update_trivial(filter1, filter2, TEP_FILTER_TRIVIAL_TRUE) != 0) {
+	/* Failed to update TRUE trivial rules of filter1 with filter2 */
+}
+
+if (tep_filter_clear_trivial(filter, TEP_FILTER_TRIVIAL_BOTH) == 0) {
+	/* Failed to clear TRUE and FALSE trivial rules of filter1 */
+}
