Errno(3)	       Perl Programmers Reference Guide		      Errno(3)

       Errno - System errno constants

	   use Errno qw(EINTR EIO :POSIX);

       "Errno" defines and conditionally exports all the error constants
       defined in your system "errno.h" include file. It has a single export
       tag, ":POSIX", which will export all POSIX defined error numbers.

       "Errno" also makes "%!" magic such that each element of "%!" has a non-
       zero value only if $! is set to that value. For example:

	   use Errno;

	   unless (open(FH, "/fangorn/spouse")) {
	       if ($!{ENOENT}) {
		   warn "Get a wife!\n";
	       } else {
		   warn "This path is barred: $!";

       If a specified constant "EFOO" does not exist on the system, $!{EFOO}
       returns "".  You may use "exists $!{EFOO}" to check whether the
       constant is available on the system.

       Importing a particular constant may not be very portable, because the
       import will fail on platforms that do not have that constant.  A more
       portable way to set $! to a valid value is to use:

	   if (exists &Errno::EFOO) {
	       $! = &Errno::EFOO;
