NAME

       fmtmsg.h - message display structures

SYNOPSIS

       #include <fmtmsg.h>

DESCRIPTION

       The  <fmtmsg.h>  header shall define the following macros, which expand
       to constant integer expressions:

       MM_HARD
              Source of the condition is hardware.

       MM_SOFT
              Source of the condition is software.

       MM_FIRM
              Source of the condition is firmware.

       MM_APPL
              Condition detected by application.

       MM_UTIL
              Condition detected by utility.

       MM_OPSYS
              Condition detected by operating system.

       MM_RECOVER
              Recoverable error.

       MM_NRECOV
              Non-recoverable error.

       MM_HALT
              Error causing application to halt.

       MM_ERROR
              Application has encountered a non-fatal fault.

       MM_WARNING
              Application has detected unusual non-error condition.

       MM_INFO
              Informative message.

       MM_NOSEV
              No severity level provided for the message.

       MM_PRINT
              Display message on standard error.

       MM_CONSOLE
              Display message on system console.

       The table below indicates the null values and identifiers for  fmtmsg()
       arguments.   The  <fmtmsg.h>  header  shall  define  the  macros in the
       Identifier column, which expand to constant expressions that expand  to
       expressions of the type indicated in the Type column:

                     Argument   Type     Null-Value   Identifier
                     label      char *   (char*)0     MM_NULLLBL
                     severity   int      0            MM_NULLSEV
                     class      long     0L           MM_NULLMC
                     text       char *   (char*)0     MM_NULLTXT
                     action     char *   (char*)0     MM_NULLACT
                     tag        char *   (char*)0     MM_NULLTAG

       The <fmtmsg.h> header shall also define the following macros for use as
       return values for fmtmsg():

       MM_OK  The function succeeded.

       MM_NOTOK
              The function failed completely.

       MM_NOMSG
              The function was unable to generate a message on standard error,
              but otherwise succeeded.

       MM_NOCON
              The  function  was  unable  to  generate  a console message, but
              otherwise succeeded.

       The following shall be declared as a function and may also  be  defined
       as a macro. A function prototype shall be provided.

              int fmtmsg(long, const char *, int,
                  const char *, const char *, const char *);

       The following sections are informative.
