\section{Standard Module \sectcode{errno}}

\renewcommand{\indexsubitem}{(in module errno)}

This module makes available standard errno system symbols.
The value of each symbol is the corresponding integer value.
The names and descriptions are borrowed from \file{linux/include/errno.h},
which should be pretty all-inclusive.  Of the following list, symbols
that are not used on the current platform are not defined by the

The module also defines the dictionary variable \code{errorcode} which
maps numeric error codes back to their symbol names, so that e.g.
\code{errno.errorcode[errno.EPERM] == 'EPERM'}.  To translate a
numeric error code to an error message, use \code{os.strerror()}.

Symbols available can include:
\begin{datadesc}{EPERM} Operation not permitted \end{datadesc}
