       events for display

       EVM Support Library

       buffer	     A pointer to a character string to receive the  formatted
		     event  data.   The stored string is null-terminated, even
		     if truncated, unless the length operand is zero (0).

       length	     The maximum length (number of characters) of  the	output
		     string.   If  the	formatted event is longer than length,
		     the output is truncated.

       event	     The event to be formatted.

       show_template The primary template for formatting the output.

       var_name	     The name of a variable data item of the event whose value
		     is to be formatted.

       translate     A	Boolean	 value indicating whether I18N (international‐
		     ization) translation is to be attempted on	 the  variable
		     data item (var_name).  If the translate operand is trans‐
		     lation is attempted.  In addition, the  following	condi‐
		     tions must be met:

		      ·	  The  variable is of type string and includes an I18N
			  (internationalization) message identifier

		      ·	  The event contains I18N (internationalization) cata‐
			  log information.

       Information  contained  in  an  event must be formatted into a readable
       format.	The software which posts the  event  (event  poster)  supplies
       formatting  information through the event's format data item.  The rou‐
       tines described here explain the event formatting capabilities.

       The routine combines the supplied event's format	 data  item  with  any
       data  items  or variables specified in the event's format item that are
       available in the event.	returns a formatted version of	the  event  in

       If the event contains I18N message catalog information, and the catalog
       is available in the user's locale, the format string is retrieved  from
       the  message  catalog  if possible.  If no translation is possible, the
       format string from the event is used.

       If the event does not contain format information,  produces  a  generic
       display of the event's name and any variables.

       The  routine  also  formats  the	 supplied  event.   uses  the supplied
       show_template string as its primary formatting template.	 Literal char‐
       acters in show_template are transferred to the buffer unchanged.

       Any  token of the form or is replaced by the value of the corresponding
       data item from the supplied event, if it is present.  item_name is  the
       name  of the item stored in the event.  If width is supplied, the value
       occupies a minimum of width character positions.	 width is  an  integer
       number  specifying  the	size  of  the  value stored in item_name.  The
       item_name is the name of a  standard  event  data  item.	  The  special
       string is replaced by the results of applying to the event.

       Refer  to evmshow(1) and EvmEvent(5) for more information about format‐
       ting events for display.

       retrieves a variable called  var_name  from  the	 supplied  event,  and
       returns a formatted version of its value in buffer.

       If translate is I18N translation is applied as appropriate.

       Floating point values are formatted using the format specifier.

       The operation completed without error.

       One of the arguments to the function is invalid.

       A value in a structure member is invalid.

       An operation failed because an attempt to acquire heap memory failed.

       The value of is not set.
