       PAPI_start -

       Start counting hardware events in an event set.

Detailed Description
       C Interface:
	   #include <papi.h>
	    int PAPI_start( int  EventSet );

	   EventSet -- an integer handle for a PAPI event set as created by PAPI_create_eventset

       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 EventSet specified does not exist.
	   PAPI_EISRUN -- The EventSet is currently counting events.
	   PAPI_ECNFLCT -- The underlying counter hardware can not count this event and other
	   events in the EventSet simultaneously.
	   PAPI_ENOEVNT -- The PAPI preset is not available on the underlying hardware.

       PAPI_start starts counting all of the hardware events contained in the previously defined
       EventSet. All counters are implicitly set to zero before counting. Assumes an initialized
       PAPI library and a properly added event set.
