NAME

       odbx_error - Returns a human readable error message

SYNOPSIS

       #include <opendbx/api.h>

       char* odbx_error (odbx_t* handle, int error);

DESCRIPTION

       odbx_error() returns an error string corresponding to the supplied error code or the error
       string generated by the native  database  library.  Error  strings  originating  from  the
       backend  modules  or  the native database client libraries are cleared as soon as the next
       odbx_*() function is called. All error strings are statically allocated and  must  not  be
       changed  or freed. If the OpenDBX library is compiled with native language support and the
       user environment variables are set accordingly to a supported language, strings which  are
       part  of  the  OpenDBX  library are translated before being returned. This may also be the
       case for strings returned by the native database libraries but depends on their support.

       The first parameter handle is the connection object created and  returned  by  odbx_init()
       which  becomes  invalid  as  soon  as  it  was supplied to odbx_finish(). Anyhow, it isn't
       necessary to supply a valid  handle  for  errors  which  use  error  codes  not  equal  to
       -ODBX_ERR_BACKEND  because  they  are returned directly from a static error message array.
       Therefore, it's possible to use odbx_error() even if  odbx_init()  wasn't  successful.  If
       -ODBX_ERR_BACKEND  is  supplied in this case nevertheless, the return error string will be
       the same as for an invalid handle.

       Almost all OpenDBX library functions return  an  error  code  if  one  of  the  operations
       couldn't  be  completed  successfully.  The  codes  returned  use values less than zero to
       indicate different kind of errors and these values can be directly passed to  odbx_error()
       to obtain the corresponding zero-terminated error string.

RETURN VALUE

       odbx_error()  returns a zero-terminated string suitable for being displayed to the user of
       the application.

ERRORS

       If an backend error occurred and handle is NULL  or  the  supplied  connection  object  is
       invalid, odbx_error() returns the localized string for -ODBX_ERR_PARAM.
