Detailed Description

Abstract base class for types defining a category of error codes.

An error category defines a context that gives meaning to the integer stored in an error_code or error_condition object. For example, the standard errno constants such a EINVAL and ENOMEM are associated with the 'generic' category and other OS-specific error numbers are associated with the 'system' category, but a user-defined category might give different meanings to the same numerical values.

A user-defined category can override the equivalent member functions to define correspondence between errors in different categories. For example, a category for errors from disk I/O could consider some of its error numbers equivalent to ENOSPC and ENOENT in the generic category.
