The value of a single performance metric (as identified by val) is
printed on the standard I/O stream identified by f.
The value of the performance metric is interpreted according to the
format of val as defined by valfmt (from a pmValueSet within a
pmResult structure; see pmFetch(3)) and the generic description of
the metrics type passed in via type.
The value for type is typically extracted from a pmDesc structure,
following a call to pmLookupDesc(3) for a particular performance
The output will be optionally padded to be at least minwidth
pmPrintValue is most useful for displaying values of performance
metrics from pmFetch(3) (which returns a set of valfmt and val pairs
for each requested metric), based upon the metrics type as returned
