genders_strerror(3) [minix man page]

GENDERS_ERRNUM(3)						    LIBGENDERS							 GENDERS_ERRNUM(3)

NAME
genders_errnum, genders_strerror, genders_errormsg, genders_perror - genders error routines SYNOPSIS
#include <genders.h> int genders_errnum(genders_t handle); char *genders_strerror(int errnum); char *genders_errormsg(genders_t handle); void genders_perror(genders_t handle, const char *msg); DESCRIPTION
genders_errnum() returns the error code stored in handle. genders_strerror() returns a pointer to a string describing the error code errnum. Generally, an error code is retrieved by genders_errnum() and then passed to genders_strerror(). genders_errormsg() returns a pointer to a string describing the error stored in handle. It is logically equivalent to: char *genders_strerror(genders_errnum(genders_t handle)); genders_perror() is similar to perror(3). It produces a message on standard error output, describing the error stored in handle. If msg is not NULL, the string pointed to by msg, a colon, and a blank are printed before the error message.
