This allows the chaining of multiple programs using shell pipes and input and output redirection. ) The C library also provides stderr, the standard error stream. These are file descriptors 0 for stdin, 1 for stdout, and 2 for stderr. txt 2>&1 % program 2>&1 | filter The 2>&1 syntax indicates that file descriptor 2 (stderr) should be merged into file descriptor 1 (stdout). Note that 2>&1 must follow a file redirection (the first example) but must precede a pipe redirection (the second example).
GNU/Linux provides a convenient function, strerror, that returns a character string description of an errno error code, suitable for use in error messages. h> if you use strerror. GNU/Linux also provides perror, which prints the error description directly to the stderr stream. Pass to perror a character string prefix to print before the error description, which should usually include the name of the function that failed. h> if you use perror. This code fragment attempts to open a file; if the open fails, it prints an error message and exits the program.
These header files make good reading for inquiring minds. Don’t include them directly in your programs, though; always use the header files in /usr/include or as mentioned in the man page for the function you’re using. 4 Source Code This is Open Source, right? The final arbiter of how the system works is the system source code itself, and luckily for Linux programmers, that source code is freely available. Chances are, your Linux distribution includes full source code for the entire system and all programs included with it; if not, you’re entitled under the terms of the GNU General Public License to request it from the distributor.
