     returns a pointer to that string.	strerror uses the same set of error
     messages as perror.  The returned string should not be overwritten.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]


NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

     Code using	sys_errlist, and _sys_errlist directly will not	be able	to
     display any errno greater than 152.
