DLPI_STRERROR(3DLPI) Data Link Provider Interface Library Functions


NAME


dlpi_strerror - get DLPI error message

SYNOPSIS


cc [ flag... ] file... -ldlpi [ library... ]
#include <libdlpi.h>

const char *dlpi_strerror(int err);


DESCRIPTION


The dlpi_strerror() function maps the error code in err into an error
message string and returns a pointer to that string.


If err is DL_SYSERR, a string that describes the current value of errno
is returned. Otherwise, if err corresponds to an error code listed in
<libdlpi.h> or <sys/dlpi.h>, a string which describes that error is
returned.


The string is not dynamically allocated and must not be freed by the
caller.

RETURN VALUES


Upon success, the function returns a pointer to the error message string.
If the error code is unknown, the string "Unknown DLPI error" is
returned.
