#include <openssl/err.h> void ERR_put_error(int lib, int func, int reason, const char *file, int line); void ERR_add_error_data(int num, ...); void ERR_add_error_vdata(int num, va_list arg);
ERR_add_error_data() associates the concatenation of its num string arguments with the error code added last. ERR_add_error_vdata() is similar except the argument is a va_list.
ERR_load_strings(3) can be used to register error strings so that the application can a generate human-readable error messages for the error code.
Function and reason codes should consist of uppercase characters, numbers and underscores only. The error file generation script translates function codes into function names by looking in the header files for an appropriate function name, if none is found it just uses the capitalized form such as "SSL3_READ_BYTES" in the above example.
The trailing section of a reason code (after the "_R_") is translated into lowercase and underscores changed to spaces.
Although a library will normally report errors using its own specific XXXerr macro, another library's macro can be used. This is normally only done when a library wants to include ASN1 code which must use the ASN1err() macro.
