System Error Codes

System Error codes are errors and error codes that programmers are able to use when their software is having a problem. They are displayed to the users of computers in response to hardware problems, software issues, or some types of user input. System error codes are usually displayed as an acronym, with a description of the error as well as a suggestion for what to do next.

These errors are visible on the internet when a website isn’t accessible, or if there is an internal server problem, such as a data base issue. If you are using a local computer the error could be as simple as «file too long,» where the solution is to change the name of the file or more complex such as «no space left on the disk.» In this situation, the user may need to shut down programs (to free swap file usage) or erase some files, or buy an extra hard drive.

Other system problems could be as serious as «fatal error,» in which a program has decided to stop or give up, however they could also be as minor as an alert that something isn’t working. Most of the errors that be experienced on the GNU/Hurd system is represented by an error code within the header file errno.

These errors can range from simple «text file busy» when an operation attempts to modify a read only file, to the more complex «broken pipeline.» These errors may also indicate that the program trying to perform on the resource has been stopped by a signal, such as SIGPIPE and not properly taken care of.
