NAME
       PAPI_read -

       Read hardware counters from an event set.

SYNOPSIS
Detailed Description
       C Interface:
	   #include <papi.h>
	    int PAPI_read(int  EventSet, long_long * values );

       PAPI_read() copies the counters of the indicated event set into the provided array.

       The counters continue counting after the read.

       Note the differences between PAPI_read() and PAPI_accum(), specifically that PAPI_accum()
       resets the values array to zero.

       PAPI_read() assumes an initialized PAPI library and a properly added event set.

       Parameters:
	   EventSet -- an integer handle for a PAPI Event Set as created by
	   PAPI_create_eventset()
	   *values -- an array to hold the counter values of the counting events

       Return values:
	   PAPI_EINVAL One or more of the arguments is invalid.
	   PAPI_ESYS A system or C library call failed inside PAPI, see the errno variable.
	   PAPI_ENOEVST The event set specified does not exist.

       Examples

	   * do_100events();
	   * if (PAPI_read(EventSet, values) != PAPI_OK)
	   *	handle_error(1);
	   * // values[0] now equals 100
	   * do_100events();
	   * if (PAPI_accum(EventSet, values) != PAPI_OK)
	   *	handle_error(1);
	   * // values[0] now equals 200
	   * values[0] = -100;
	   * do_100events();
	   * if (PAPI_accum(EventSet, values) != PAPI_OK)
	   *	 handle_error(1);
	   * // values[0] now equals 0
	   *
