Examples:

int EventCode, EventSet = PAPI_NULL;
// Convert to integer
if ( PAPI_event_name_to_code( "PAPI_TOT_INS", &EventCode ) != PAPI_OK )
handle_error( 1 );
// Create the EventSet
if ( PAPI_create_eventset( &EventSet ) != PAPI_OK )
handle_error( 1 );

if ( PAPI_add_event( EventSet, EventCode ) != PAPI_OK )
