       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.

NAME         top

       fmtmsg.h — message display structures

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <fmtmsg.h>

DESCRIPTION         top

       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 column:

                   │Argument Type  Null-Value Identifier │
                   │labelchar * │ (char*)0   │ MM_NULLLBL │
                   │severityint    │ 0          │ MM_NULLSEV │
                   │classlong   0L         │ MM_NULLMC  │
                   │textchar * │ (char*)0   │ MM_NULLTXT │
                   │actionchar * │ (char*)0   │ MM_NULLACT │
                   │tagchar * │ (char*)0   │ MM_NULLTAG │
       The <fmtmsg.h> header shall also define the following symbolic
       constants 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.
