ERROR(9P)                                                            ERROR(9P)



NAME
       error - return an error

SYNOPSIS
       size[4] Rerror tag[2] ename[s]

DESCRIPTION
       The Rerror message (there is no Terror) is used to return an error
       string describing the failure of a transaction.  It replaces the
       corresponding reply message that would accompany a successful call; its
       tag is that of the failing request.

       By convention, clients may truncate error messages after ERRMAX-1
       bytes; ERRMAX is defined in <libc.h>.
