fmtmsg.h(0P)		   POSIX Programmer's Manual		  fmtmsg.h(0P)

       This  manual  page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual.  The Linux
       implementation of this interface may differ (consult the	 corresponding
       Linux  manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may
       not be implemented on Linux.

       fmtmsg.h — message display structures

       #include <fmtmsg.h>

       The <fmtmsg.h> header shall define the following symbolic constants:

       MM_HARD	     Source of the condition is hardware.

       MM_SOFT	     Source of the condition is software.

       MM_FIRM	     Source of the condition is firmware.

       MM_APPL	     Condition detected by application.

       MM_UTIL	     Condition detected by utility.

       MM_OPSYS	     Condition detected by operating system.

       MM_RECOVER    Recoverable error.

       MM_NRECOV     Non-recoverable error.

       MM_HALT	     Error causing application to halt.

       MM_ERROR	     Application has encountered a non-fatal fault.

       MM_WARNING    Application has detected unusual non-error condition.

       MM_INFO	     Informative message.

       MM_NOSEV	     No severity level provided for the message.

       MM_PRINT	     Display message on standard error.

       MM_CONSOLE    Display message on system console.

       The table below indicates the null values and identifiers for  fmtmsg()
       arguments. The <fmtmsg.h> header shall define the symbolic constants in
       the Identifier column, which shall have the type indicated in the  Type

		    │Argument │	 Type  │ Null-Value │ Identifier │
		    │label    │ char * │ (char*)0   │ MM_NULLLBL │
		    │severity │ int    │ 0	    │ MM_NULLSEV │
		    │class    │ long   │ 0L	    │ MM_NULLMC	 │
		    │text     │ char * │ (char*)0   │ MM_NULLTXT │
		    │action   │ char * │ (char*)0   │ MM_NULLACT │
		    │tag      │ char * │ (char*)0   │ MM_NULLTAG │
       The  <fmtmsg.h>	header	shall  also define the following symbolic con‐
       stants for use as return values for fmtmsg():

       MM_OK	     The function succeeded.

       MM_NOTOK	     The function failed completely.

       MM_NOMSG	     The function was unable to generate a message on standard
		     error, but otherwise succeeded.

       MM_NOCON	     The  function  was	 unable to generate a console message,
		     but otherwise succeeded.

       The following shall be declared as a function and may also  be  defined
       as a macro. A function prototype shall be provided.

	   int fmtmsg(long, const char *, int,
	       const char *, const char *, const char *);

       The following sections are informative.
