[ Operating System | The ECLiPSe Built-In Predicates | Reference Manual | Alphabetic Index ]

errno_id(-Message)

Message is bound to the message string that corresponds to most recent operating system error that occurred during the execution.
Message
Variable.

Description

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.

Modes and Determinism

Exceptions

(5) type error
Message is neither variable nor string.

Examples

[eclipse 3]: delete(nofile).
system interface error: No such file or directory in delete(nofile)

[eclipse 4]: errno_id(Msg).
Msg = "No such file or directory"
yes.
