NAME
mkerrlst - create system error file SYNOPSIS
mkerrlst [ -i inputfile ] [ -o outputfile ] DESCRIPTION
Mkerrlst(1) creates error message files in the format described by syserrlst(5). With no arguments mkerrlst creates the file /etc/syserrlst from the internal array sys_errlist. Give just the -o option mkerrlst will create the file outputfile from the internal array sys_errlist. Given just the -i option mkerrlst will create the file /etc/syserrlst from the input file inputfile. Given both -i and -o options mkerrlst will create the error message file outputfile from the strings contained in inputfile. NOTE: error messages are numbered from 0. If the error 0 does not have a message associated with it the first string in inputfile must still be present. RETURN VALUE
mkerrlst exits with status of 0 if no errors are encountered. If errors do occur an error message is printed on stderr and the exit status is 1. ERRORS
mkerrlst(1) can encounter any of the errors for the open(2), lseek(2), read(2), or write(2) system calls. SEE ALSO
syserrlst(3) syserrlst(5) HISTORY
mkerrlst(1), first appeared in 2.11BSD. BUGS
Error messages can be a maximum of 80 characters. 3rd Berkeley Distribution March 14, 1996 MKERRLST(1)

NAME
syserrlst - error message file format DESCRIPTION
mkerrlst(1), creates error message files in the format described below. An ``error message file'' consists of a header, an array of structures specifying the offset and length of each message, and the array of message strings separated by newlines. The message strings are separated by newlines but the newline characters are not included in the size of the message. These newline char- acters serve only to make the file editable or printable (after stripping off the header). The file format is: /* * Definitions used by the 'mkerrlst' program which creates error message * files. * * The format of the file created is: * * struct ERRLSTHDR ehdr; * struct ERRLST emsg[num_of_messages]; * struct { * char msg[] = "error message string"; * char lf = '0; * } [num_of_messages]; * * Note: the newlines are NOT included in the message lengths, the newlines * are present to make it easy to 'cat' or 'vi' the file. */ struct ERRLSTHDR { short magic; short maxmsgnum; short maxmsglen; short pad[5]; /* Reserved */ }; struct ERRLST { off_t offmsg; short lenmsg; }; #define ERRMAGIC 012345 SEE ALSO
mkerrlst(1), syserrlst(3) BUGS
Format of the file isn't necessarily portable between machines. HISTORY
This file format is new with 2.11BSD. 3rd Berkeley Distribution March 7, 1996 SYSERRLST(5)
