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 associ-
       ated 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.
