Error class resource descriptions
This resource determines if error messages should be buffered so they can be
extracted by the application programmer at a later time.
Specifies the error level that should be reported. Any error message that
is less severe than this level will not be reported or buffered.
Used to determine if error messages should be printed or not. If they are,
they are printed to the file indicated by the errFileName,
errFilePtr and errUnitNumber resources.
Specifies the file to print error messages to. The error object understands
the file names "stderr" and "stdout" to be the streams associated with those
standard FILE pointers in the UNIX environment. If the
Error object is in Fortran mode, it will still interpret
the "stderr" and "stdout" file names. If the errUnitNumber resource
is not set, then the library will use the appropriate unit numbers for
these standard UNIX streams. The error object will try to create a file of
any other name relative to the current directory or append to that file if it
Note: If the Error object is in C mode, and
the errFilePtr resource is set, then this resource is ignored. Also,
if the Error object is in Fortran mode, and the
errUnitNumber is set to an Open unit, this resource is ignored.
This resource is only used if the HLU library is initialized with one
of the C functions NhlInitialize or NhlOpen.
This resource specifies the C file pointer to print the error messages
to, if the errPrint resource is True. If this resource is set, then
the errFileName resource is ignored.
This resource is only used if the HLU library is initialized with one of the
Fortran routines NHLFINITIALIZE or NHLFOPEN.
This resource specifies the Fortran unit number to print the error messages
to if the errPrint resource is True. If the unit number has already
been opened, then the Error object ignores the
errFileName resource. If the unit number has not been opened yet,
then the Error object attempts to open the file. If
the errFileName resource has been set, then it uses that name,
otherwise it doesn't. If this resource is not set, then the
Error object just uses the errFileName resource
to determine where it should print error messages.
Note: If the errFileName resource is set to
either "stdout" or "stderr", then this defaults to the appropriate unit
numbers for those standard UNIX streams, usually 6 and 0 respectively.
