std::errc: std::errc


std::errc - std::errc


Defined in header <system_error>
enum class errc; (since C++11)

The scoped enumeration std::errc defines the values of portable error conditions that correspond to the POSIX error codes.

Non-member functions

make_error_code(std::errc) constructs an std::errc error code

make_error_condition(std::errc) constructs an std::errc error condition

Helper classes

is_error_condition_enum<std::errc> extends the type trait std::is_error_condition_enum to identify the the std::errc values as error conditions
                                   (function template)


// Run this code

  #include <thread>
  int main()
      try {

              std::cout << "The error condition is std::errc::invalid_argument\n";
          std::cout << "the error description is " << e.what() << '\n';


  Caught a system_error
  The error condition is std::errc::invalid_argument
  the error description is Invalid argument
