DESCRIPTION         top

       As part of the Performance Co-Pilot Log Import API (see
       LOGIMPORT(3)), pmiErrStr translates error codes returned from the
       other routines in the Log Import library into printable error

       code would normally have a negative value.  As a special case, if
       code is -1 then the error code returned from the last routine
       called in the LOGIMPORT library for this context will be used.

       The pmiErrStr_r function does the same, but stores the result in
       a user-supplied buffer buf of length buflen, which should have
       room for at least PMI_MAXERRMSGLEN bytes.

       The set of possible error codes and messages is all those defined
       by pmErrStr(3) and PCPIntro(3), plus the additonal ones defined
       in <pcp/import.h> with error code names of the form PMI_ERR_....
