Schily's LIBRARY FUNCTIONS                              ERRMSG(3)


NAME

     errmsg() - prints error message


SYNOPSIS

     errmsg (format, arg1...argn)
          char *format;


DESCRIPTION

     errmsg() prints  on  the  error  output  stream,  a  message
     corresponding to the last error encountered by the system on
     behalf of the process. errmsg() begins its output  with  the
     current program name (as passed to it by exec ). The message
     can be expanded with additional arguments, in the same  form
     printf() would.


RETURNS

     none


EXAMPLES

     while (more_args) {
          if (( f = fileopen(arg, "r")) == NULL) {
               errmsg("Skipping file %s.\n", arg);
               continue;
          }
          doit(f)
     }


SEE ALSO

     comerr(3), comerrno(3),  error(3),  geterrno(3),  printf(3),
     format(3)


NOTES

     errmsg() is identical to comerr()  except  that  instead  of
     exiting,  errmsg()  prints  the error message and returns to
     the caller.
