[ Operating System | Reference Manual | Alphabetic Index ]
Message is bound to the message string that corresponds to most recent
operating system error that occurred during the execution.
This predicate unifies Message with the string that corresponds to the
most recent operating system error that occurred during the execution.
These messages differ between different operating systems.
Operating system interface errors which occur within built-in predicates
are normally indicated by the predicate raising event 170
"system interface error". The event handler then retrieves the
error message using errno_id/1. The system remembers the last error
message until a new error occurs.
