+int *tep_parse_header_page*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_, char pass:[*]_buf_, unsigned long _size_, int _long_size_);
+The _tep_parse_header_page()_ function parses the header page data from _buf_,
+and initializes the _tep_, trace event parser context, with it. The buffer
+_buf_ is with _size_, and is supposed to be copied from
+Some old kernels do not have header page info, in this case the
+_tep_parse_header_page()_ function  can be called with _size_ equal to 0. The
+_tep_ context is initialized with default values. The _long_size_ can be used in
+this use case, to set the size of a long integer to be used.
+The _tep_parse_header_page()_ function returns 0 in case of success, or -1
+in case of an error.
