Translating condition values to error messages?

» close window

The Question is:

what are the following error messages:

The Answer is :

  For registered facilities or for non-registered facilities with external
  message files, translating the condition value to a text message will
  usually involve the SET MESSAGE command and the F$MESSAGE lexical,
  or similar techniques.  For example:
    $ bogus
    %DCL-W-IVVERB, unrecognized command verb - check validity and spelling
    $ show symbol $status
      $STATUS == "%X00038090"
    $ x=f$message(%X00038090)
    $ show symbol x
      X = "%CLI-W-IVVERB, unrecognized command verb - check validity and spelling"
  Please see the documentation and the message file(s) for the particular
  application(s) that have generated these particular condition values --
  these condition values are apparently not from a facility that has been
  registered with OpenVMS, as the control fields specifically indicate that
  the message was not generated by a registered facility.  The control
  field also indicates that the message has already been displayed once.
  For details on the fields and meanings of the standard OpenVMS condition
  value format, please see the OpenVMS Programming Concepts and related
