       comedi_errno - number of last Comedilib error


       #include <comedilib.h>

       int comedi_errno(void);


       When a Comedilib function fails, it usually returns -1 or NULL, depending on the return
       type. An internal library variable stores an error number, which can be retrieved by
       calling comedi_errno This error number can be converted to a human-readable form by the
       functions comedi_perror and comedi_strerror.

       These functions are intended to mimic the behavior of the standard C library functions
       perror, strerror, and errno. In particular, Comedilib functions sometimes return an error
       that is generated inside the C library; the comedi error message in this case is the same
       as the C library.

       The function comedi_errno returns an integer describing the most recent Comedilib error.
       This integer may be used as the errnum parameter for comedi_strerror.
