errno - look up errno names and descriptions


errno
{name-or-code}

errno
[-ls] [--list]

errno
[-s] [--search] {word}

errno
[-S] [--search-all-locales] {word}

errno looks up errno macro names, errno codes, and the corresponding descriptions. For example, if given ENOENT on a Linux system, it prints out the code 2 and the description "No such file or directory". If given the code 2, it prints ENOENT and the same description.

-l, --list
List all errno values.
-s, --search
Search for errors whose description contains all the given words (case-insensitive).
-S, --search-all-locales
Like --search, but searches all installed locales.
