NAME ^

Mac::Errors - constants for Mac error codes

SYNOPSIS ^

        use Mac::Errors qw(openErr);
        
        if( $value == openErr )
                {
                ...
                }
        
        my $error = $MacErrors{ $symbol };
        # -- OR --
        my $error = $MacErrors{ $number };
        
        my $symbol = $error->symbol;
        my $number = $error->number;
        my $desc   = $error->description; 
        
        # in MacPerl, $^E is meaningful, and we tie $MacError to it
        use Mac::Errors qw( $MacError );
        
        open FILE, $foo or die $^E;       # error number
        open FILE, $foo or die $MacError; # gets description from $^E

DESCRIPTION ^

The %MacErrors hash indexes error information by the error number or symbol. Each value is a Mac::Errors object which has the symbol, number, and description.

The $MacError scalar performs some tied magic to translate MacPerl's $^E to the error text. On other platforms, it is always undef.

METHODS ^

symbol

Returns the symbolic constant, (e.g. openErr)

number

Returns the error number, (e.g. -23)

description

Returns the errror description from MacErrors.h, which may mean something to you, and may not, (e.g. I/O System Errors).

Descriptions of errors are not unique, and some errors do not have a description.

CONSTANTS ^

All symbolic constants also have a subroutine of the same name. The subroutine returns the error number.
