An error with the `'ERR_INVALID_FILE_URL_HOST'` code may be thrown when a
Node.js API that consumes `file:` URLs (such as certain functions in the
[`fs`][] module) encounters a file URL with an incompatible host. Currently,
this situation can only occur on Unix-like systems, where only `localhost` or
an empty host is supported.

An error with code `'ERR_INVALID_TUPLE'` is thrown when an element in the
`iterable` provided to the [WHATWG][WHATWG URL API] [`URLSearchParams`
constructor][`new URLSearchParams(iterable)`] does not represent a `[name,

exactly two elements.

### ERR_MISSING_ARGS

The `'ERR_MISSING_ARGS'` error code is a generic error code for instances where
a required argument of a Node.js API is not passed. This is currently only used
in the [WHATWG URL API][] for strict compliance with the specification (which
in some cases may accept `func(undefined)` but not `func()`). In most native
Node.js APIs, `func(undefined)` and `func()` are treated identically, and the
[`ERR_INVALID_ARG_TYPE`][] error code may be used instead.

indication of a bug within Node.js itself.
