CSX_ERROR2TEXT(9F) Kernel Functions for Drivers CSX_ERROR2TEXT(9F)

csx_Error2Text - convert error return codes to text strings

#include <sys/pccard.h>
int32_t csx_Error2Text(error2text_t *er);

illumos DDI Specific (illumos DDI)

Pointer to an error2text_t structure.

This function is an illumos-specific extension that provides a method for clients to convert Card Services error return codes to text strings.

The structure members of error2text_t are:

uint32_t     item;                             /*the error code*/
char         test[CS_ERROR_MAX_BUFSIZE};       /*the error code*/

A pointer to the text for the Card Services error return code in the item field is returned in the text field if the error return code is found. The client is not responsible for allocating a buffer to hold the text. If the Card Services error return code specified in the item field is not found, the text field will be set to a string of the form:

"{unknown Card Services return code}"

Successful operation.


No PCMCIA hardware installed.

This function may be called from user or kernel context.

Example 1 : Using the csxError2Text function

if ((ret = csx_RegisterClient(&client_handle, &
	   client_reg)) != CS_SUCCESS)
   error2text_t error2text;
   error2text.item = ret;
   cmn_err(CE_CONT, "RegisterClient failed %s (0x%x)",
	   error2text.text, ret);
