papi_command_line is a PAPI utility program that adds named events from the command line to a PAPI EventSet and does some work with that EventSet. This serves as a handy way to see if events can be counted together, and if they give reasonable results for known work.



There are no known bugs in this utility. If you find a bug, it should be reported to the PAPI Mailing List at
