PAPI for FreeBSD

I'm sorry Benjamin, but libpmc/hwpmc (and my version of PAPI by extension)
does not support Core Duo processors nowadays.

Maybe Joseph Koshy (the person who is responsible for libpmc/hwpmc) could
give you some info on what he needs to support them.

Thank you,

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...
