pmiErrStr: convert a LOGIMPORT error code into a string
NAMEpmiErrStr - convert a LOGIMPORT error code into a string
C SYNOPSIS#include <pcp/pmapi.h>
const char *pmiErrStr(int code);
char *pmiErrStr_r(int code, char buf, int buflen);
Perl SYNOPSISuse PCP::LogImport;
DESCRIPTIONAs 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 messages.
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.
