ERR_FATAL_ERROR — get
library, function and reason codes for OpenSSL errors
The error code returned by
ERR_get_error(3) consists of a
library number, function code, and reason code.
ERR_GET_REASON() can be used to extract these.
The library number and function code describe where the error occurred, whereas the reason code is the information about what went wrong.
Each sub-library of OpenSSL has a unique library number; function and reason codes are unique within each sub-library. Note that different libraries may use the same value to signal different functions and reasons.
ERR_R_* reason codes such as
ERR_R_MALLOC_FAILURE are globally unique. However,
when checking for sub-library specific reason codes, be sure to also compare
the library number.
ERR_FATAL_ERROR() indicates whether a
given error code is a fatal error.
These functions are implemented as macros.
ERR_GET_REASON() return the library number, function
code, and reason code, respectively.
ERR_FATAL_ERROR() returns non-zero if the
error is fatal or 0 otherwise.
ERR_FATAL_ERROR() first appeared in SSLeay 0.4.4 and
have been available since OpenBSD 2.4.
