Return values:

PAPI_EINVAL One or more of the arguments is invalid.
PAPI_ENOEVNT The PAPI preset is not available on the underlying hardware.

* int retval;
* // Initialize the library
* retval = PAPI_library_init(PAPI_VER_CURRENT);
* if (retval != PAPI_VER_CURRENT) {
*   fprintf(stderr,*   exit(1); 
* }
* if (PAPI_query_event(PAPI_TOT_INS) != PAPI_OK) {
*   fprintf(stderr,*   exit(1);
* }
