+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Filters can be attached to traced events. They can be used to filter out various
+events when outputting them. Each event can be filtered based on its parameters,
+described in the event's format file. This set of functions can be used to
+create, delete, modify and attach event filters.
+
+The _tep_filter_alloc()_ function creates a new event filter. The _tep_ argument
+is the trace event parser context.
+
+The _tep_filter_free()_ function frees an event filter and all resources that it
+had used.
+
+The _tep_filter_reset()_ function removes all rules from an event filter and
+resets it.
+
+The _tep_filter_add_filter_str()_ function adds a new rule to the _filter_. The
+_filter_str_ argument is the filter string, that contains the rule.
+
+The _tep_event_filtered()_ function checks if the event with _event_id_ has
+_filter_.
+
+The _tep_filter_remove_event()_ function removes a _filter_ for an event with
+_event_id_.
+
+The _tep_filter_match()_ function tests if a _record_ matches given _filter_.
+
+The _tep_filter_copy()_ function copies a _source_ filter into a _dest_ filter.
+
+The _tep_filter_compare()_ function compares two filers - _filter1_ and _filter2_.
+
+The _tep_filter_make_string()_ function constructs a string, displaying
+the _filter_ contents for given _event_id_.
+
+The _tep_filter_strerror()_ function copies the _filter_ error buffer into the
+given _buf_ with the size _buflen_. If the error buffer is empty, in the _buf_
+is copied a string, describing the error _err_.
+
+RETURN VALUE
+------------
+The _tep_filter_alloc()_ function returns a pointer to the newly created event
+filter, or NULL in case of an error.
+
+The _tep_filter_add_filter_str()_ function returns 0 if the rule was
+successfully added or a negative error code.  Use _tep_filter_strerror()_ to see
+actual error message in case of an error.
+
+The _tep_event_filtered()_ function returns 1 if the filter is found for given
+event, or 0 otherwise.
+
+The _tep_filter_remove_event()_ function returns 1 if the vent was removed, or
+0 if the event was not found.
+
+The _tep_filter_match()_ function returns _tep_errno_, according to the result:
+[verse]
+--
+_pass:[TEP_ERRNO__FILTER_MATCH]_	- filter found for event, the record matches.
+_pass:[TEP_ERRNO__FILTER_MISS]_		- filter found for event, the record does not match.
+_pass:[TEP_ERRNO__FILTER_NOT_FOUND]_	- no filter found for record's event.
+_pass:[TEP_ERRNO__NO_FILTER]_		- no rules in the filter.
+--
+or any other _tep_errno_, if an error occurred during the test.
+
+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.
+
+The _tep_filter_make_string()_ function returns a string, which must be freed
+with free(), or NULL in case of an error.
+
+The _tep_filter_strerror()_ function returns 0 if message was filled
+successfully, or -1 in case of an error.

+
+	if (tep_filter_remove_event(filter, event->id) == 1) {
