<errno.h>(P)		   POSIX Programmer's Manual		  <errno.h>(P)



PROLOG
       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
       errno.h - system error numbers

SYNOPSIS
       #include <errno.h>

DESCRIPTION
       Some of the functionality described on this reference page extends  the
       ISO C  standard.	 Any  conflict between the requirements described here
       and  the	  ISO C	  standard   is	  unintentional.    This   volume   of
       IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 defers to the ISO C standard.

       The  ISO C  standard  only  requires  the symbols [EDOM], [EILSEQ], and
       [ERANGE] to be defined.

       The <errno.h> header shall provide a declaration	 for  errno  and  give
       positive	 values	 for  the  following  symbolic constants. Their values
       shall be unique except as noted below.
