NAME

ERR_GET_LIB, ERR_GET_FUNC, ERR_GET_REASON, ERR_FATAL_ERROR - get information from error codes

SYNOPSIS

 #include <openssl/err.h>
 int ERR_GET_LIB(unsigned long e);
 int ERR_GET_FUNC(unsigned long e);
 int ERR_GET_REASON(unsigned long e);
 int ERR_FATAL_ERROR(unsigned long e);

DESCRIPTION

The error code returned by ERR_get_error() consists of a library number, function code and reason code. ERR_GET_LIB (), ERR_GET_FUNC () and ERR_GET_REASON () can be used to extract these.

ERR_FATAL_ERROR () indicates whether a given error code is a fatal error.

The library number and function code describe where the error occurred, the reason code is the information about what went wrong.

Each sub-library of OpenSSL has a unique library number; function and reason codes are unique within each sub-library. Note that different libraries may use the same value to signal different functions and reasons.

ERR_R_... reason codes such as ERR_R_MALLOC_FAILURE are globally unique. However, when checking for sub-library specific reason codes, be sure to also compare the library number.

ERR_GET_LIB (), ERR_GET_FUNC (), ERR_GET_REASON (), and ERR_FATAL_ERROR ()
are macros.

RETURN VALUES

The library number, function code, reason code, and whether the error is fatal, respectively.
