       t_error() - produce error message

       The  function  produces	a  language-dependent  message on the standard
       error output which describes the last error encountered during  a  call
       to a transport function.	 The argument string errmsg is a user-supplied
       error message that gives context to the error.

       The error message is written as follows:

	      First if errmsg is not a null pointer and the character  pointed
	      to be errmsg is not the null character, the string pointed to by
	      errmsg is written followed by a colon and a space.

	      Then a standard error  message  string  for  the	current	 error
	      defined in is written.  If has a value different from [TSYSERR],
	      the standard error message string is followed by a newline char‐
	      acter.   If,  however, is equal to [TSYSERR], the string is fol‐
	      lowed by the standard error message string for the current error
	      defined in followed by a newline.

       The  language  for  error message strings written by is implementation-
       defined.	 If it is in English, the error message string describing  the
       value  in  is  identical to the comments following the codes defined in
       The contents of the error message strings describing the value  in  are
       the same as those returned by the function with an argument of

       To  simplify  variant  formatting  of  messages,	 the  array of message
       strings is provided; can be used as an index in this table to  get  the
       message	string	without the newline.  The variable is the largest mes‐
       sage number provided for in the table.

       The error number, is only set when  an  error  occurs  and  it  is  not
       cleared on successful calls.

       For  XTI,  upon	completion,  a	value  of 0 is returned.  TLI does not
       return a value.

       No errors are defined for the function.

       If a function fails on transport endpoint fd2 because a bad address was
       given, the following call might follow the failure:

       The diagnostic message to be printer would look like:

       which function failed on which transport endpoint.
