errno — Standard errno system symbols

This module makes available standard errno system symbols. The value of each symbol is the corresponding integer value. The names and descriptions are borrowed from linux/include/errno.h, which should be pretty all-inclusive.

errno.errorcode
Dictionary providing a mapping from the errno value to the string name in the underlying system. For instance, errno.errorcode[errno.EPERM] maps to 'EPERM'.

To translate a numeric error code to an error message, use os.strerror().

Of the following list, symbols that are not used on the current platform are not defined by the module. The specific list of defined symbols is available as errno.errorcode.keys(). Symbols available can include:

errno.EPERM
Operation not permitted
errno.ENOENT
No such file or directory
errno.ESRCH
No such process
errno.EINTR

Interrupted system call.
