  trace_seq_init(),
  trace_seq_destroy(),
  trace_seq_reset(),
  trace_seq_terminate(),
  trace_seq_putc(),
  trace_seq_puts(),
  trace_seq_printf(),
  trace_seq_vprintf(),
  trace_seq_do_fprintf(),
  trace_seq_do_printf()

+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Trace sequences are used to allow a function to call several other functions
+to create a string of data to use.
+
+The _trace_seq_init()_ function initializes the trace sequence _s_.
+
+The _trace_seq_destroy()_ function destroys the trace sequence _s_ and frees
+all its resources that it had used.
+
+The _trace_seq_reset()_ function re-initializes the trace sequence _s_. All
+characters already written in _s_ will be deleted.
+
+The _trace_seq_terminate()_ function terminates the trace sequence _s_. It puts
+the null character pass:['\0'] at the end of the buffer.
+
+The _trace_seq_putc()_ function puts a single character _c_ in the trace
+sequence _s_.
+
+The _trace_seq_puts()_ function puts a NULL terminated string _str_ in the
+trace sequence _s_.
+
+The _trace_seq_printf()_ function puts a formated string _fmt _with
+variable arguments _..._ in the trace sequence _s_.
+
+The _trace_seq_vprintf()_ function puts a formated string _fmt _with
+list of arguments _args_ in the trace sequence _s_.
+
+The _trace_seq_do_printf()_ function prints the buffer of trace sequence _s_ to
+the standard output stdout.
+
+The _trace_seq_do_fprintf()_ function prints the buffer of trace sequence _s_
+to the given file _fp_.
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+Both _trace_seq_putc()_ and _trace_seq_puts()_ functions return the number of
+characters put in the trace sequence, or 0 in case of an error
+
+Both _trace_seq_printf()_ and _trace_seq_vprintf()_ functions return 0 if the
+trace oversizes the buffer's free space, the number of characters printed, or
+a negative value in case of an error.
+
+Both _trace_seq_do_printf()_ and _trace_seq_do_fprintf()_ functions return the
+number of printed characters, or -1 in case of an error.
