modbus_strerror(3)
=================
NAME
----
modbus_strerror - return the error message
SYNOPSIS
--------
*const char *modbus_strerror(int 'errnum');*
DESCRIPTION
-----------
The *modbus_strerror()* function shall return a pointer to an error message
string corresponding to the error number specified by the _errnum_ argument. As
libmodbus defines additional error numbers over and above those defined by the
operating system, applications should use *modbus_strerror()* in preference to
the standard *strerror()* function.
RETURN VALUE
------------
The *modbus_strerror()* function shall return a pointer to an error message
string.
ERRORS
------
No errors are defined.
EXAMPLE
-------
.Display an error message when a Modbus connection cannot be established
[source,c]
-------------------
if (modbus_connect(ctx) == -1) {
fprintf(stderr, "Connection failed: %s\n", modbus_strerror(errno));
abort();
}
