DESCRIPTION


The pool_error() function returns the error value of the last failure

The pool_strerror() function returns a descriptive null-terminated string
for each of the valid pool error codes.


The following error codes can be returned by pool_error():

RETURN VALUES


The pool_error() function returns the current pool error value for the
calling thread from among the following:

configuration was not opened with the correct
opening permissions.

POE_BAD_PROP_TYPE
