std::system_category: std::system_category

NAME

std::system_category - std::system_category

Synopsis


Defined in header <system_error>
const std::error_category& system_category() noexcept; (since C++11)


Obtains a reference to the static error category object for errors reported by the operating system. The object is required to override the virtual function std::error_category::name() to return a pointer to the string "system". It is also required to override the virtual function std::error_category::default_error_condition() to map the error codes that match POSIX errno values to std::generic_category.

Parameters


(none)

Return value


A reference to the static object of unspecified runtime type, derived from std::error_category.

Example


// Run this code


  #include <iostream>
  #include <system_error>
  #include <iomanip>
  #include <string>


  int main()
  {
      std::error_condition econd = std::system_category().default_error_condition(EDOM);
      std::cout << "Category: " << econd.category().name() << '\n'
                << "Value: " << econd.value() << '\n'
                << "Message: " << econd.message() << '\n';


      econd = std::system_category().default_error_condition(10001);
      std::cout << "Category: " << econd.category().name() << '\n'
                << "Value: " << econd.value() << '\n'
                << "Message: " << econd.message() << '\n';
  }

Possible output:


  Category: generic
  Value: 33
  Message: Numerical argument out of domain
  Category: system
  Value: 10001
  Message: Unknown error 10001
