     These convenience functions translate numeric constants used by the
     Performance Counters Library (libpmc, -lpmc) to const char * pointers to
     human readable representations of their arguments.

     Function pmc_name_of_capability() translates a PMC capability flag given
     in argument pc to a human readable string.	 PMC capabilities are
     described in pmc(3).

     Function pmc_name_of_class() translates the PMC class value specified in
     argument pc to a human readable name.  PMC classes are described in

     Function pmc_name_of_cputype() translates the CPU type value specified in
     argument ct to a human readable name.  CPU types known to the library are
     described in pmc(3).

     Function pmc_name_of_disposition() translates the PMC row disposition
     specified in argument pd to a human readable name.	 PMC row dispositions
     are described in hwpmc(4).

     Function pmc_name_of_event() translates the PMC event number specified by
     argument pe to a string.  PMC event names are documented in section EVENT
     SPECIFIERS of pmc(3).

     Function pmc_name_of_mode() translates the PMC mode specified by argument
     pm to a human readable string.  PMC modes are described in pmc(3).

     Function pmc_name_of_state() translates the value of argument ps to a
     human readable name.

     The returned pointers point to static storage inside the PMC library and
     should not be freed by the caller.

     These functions return a non-NULL pointer on successful completion.  In
     case of an error, a NULL pointer is returned and the global variable
     errno is set to indicate the error.

     A call to these functions may fail with the following errors:

     [EINVAL]		The function argument specified an invalid value.
