errortype

errortype — The classification of an error message.

Synopsis

errortype ::= [-]

Description

The errortype element identifies a class of error. The exact classifications are naturally going to vary by system, but “recoverable” and “fatal” are two possibilities.

DocBook provides four elements for identifying the parts of an error message: errorcode, for the alphanumeric error code (e.g., “–2”); errorname, for the symbolic name of the error (e.g., “ENOENT”); errortext, for the text of the error message (e.g., “file not found”); and errortype, for the error type (e.g., “recoverable”).
