/** \file event.h
Functions for handling event triggers
Because most of these functions can be called by signal
handler, it is important to make it well defined when these
functions produce output or perform memory allocations, since
such functions may not be safely called by signal handlers.

The structure which represents an event. The event_t struct has
several event-related use-cases:
- When used as a parameter to event_add, it represents a class of events, and function_name is the name of the function which will be called whenever an event matching the specified class occurs. This is also how events are stored internally.
- When used as a parameter to event_get, event_remove and event_fire, it represents a class of events, and if the function_name field is non-zero, only events which call the specified function will be returned.
