globus_error_api — Globus Error API


Globus Errno Error API

Globus Generic Error API

Detailed Description

Intended use:

If a function needs to return an error it should do the following:

External errors, such as error returns from system calls and GSSAPI errors, should be wrapped using the appropriate error type.
The wrapped external error should then be passed as the cause of a globus error.
External error types are expected to provide a utility function to combine the above two steps.
The globus error should then be returned from the function.

Notes on how to generate globus errors:

Module specific error types should be greater or equal to 1024 (to leave some space for global error types).
You may wish to generate a mapping from error types to format strings for use in short descriptions.
You may also wish to generate a common prefix for all of the above fromat strings. The suggested prefix is 'Function: %s Line:
%s '.
