  I'm glad to announce you that PAPI-3.5.0 has reached the FreeBSD ports
tree and now it's generally available for all FreeBSD users.

  Port information is available at

  See for
installation instructions.

  There are some issues with P4 processors that need to be fixed on
PAPI_write / PAPI_reset routines, but the package have the minimal (and most
important functionality) working fine for the rest of the substrates.

Empty your memory,
with a free()...
like a pointer!

If you cast a pointer to an integer,
it becomes an integer,
if you cast a pointer to a struct,
it becomes a struct.

The pointer can crash...,
and can overflow.

Be a pointer my friend...
