NAME

       pmErrStr - convert a PMAPI error code into a string

C SYNOPSIS

       #include <pcp/pmapi.h>

       const char *pmErrStr(int code);

       cc ... -lpcp

DESCRIPTION

       Translate  an error code into a text string, suitable for generating a diagnostic message.
       By convention, all error codes are negative.  The small values are assumed to  be  negated
       versions  of  the Unix error codes as defined in <errno.h> and the strings returned are as
       per strerror(3C).  The larger, negative error codes are  Performance  Metrics  Application
       Programming  Interface  (PMAPI)  error  conditions  and pmErrStr(3) returns an appropriate
       PMAPI error string, as determined by code.

       The string value is held in a single static buffer, so the returned value  is  only  valid
       until the next call to pmErrStr.
