       perror - explain error codes


       perror [options] errorcode ...


       For most system errors, MySQL displays, in addition to an internal text
       message, the system error code in one of the following styles:

       message ... (errno: #)
       message ... (Errcode: #)

       You can find out what the error code means by either examining the
       documentation for your system or by using the perror utility.

       perror prints a description for a system error code or for a storage
       engine (table handler) error code.

       Invoke perror like this:

       shell> perror [options] errorcode ...


       shell> perror 13 64
       Error code  13:  Permission denied
       Error code  64:  Machine is not on the network

       Note: To obtain the error message for a MySQL Cluster error code,
       invoke perror with the --ndb option:

       shell> perror --ndb errorcode

       Note that the meaning of system error messages may be dependent on your
       operating system. A given error code may mean different things on
       different operating systems.
