addsev


NAME

addsev - define additional severities

SYNOPSIS

#include <pfmt.h>

int addsev(int int_val, const char *string);

DESCRIPTION

The addsev() function defines additional severities for use in subsequent calls to pfmt(3C) or lfmt(3C). It associates an integer value int_val in the range [5-255] with a character string, overwriting any previous string association between int_val and string.

If int_val is OR-ed with the flags argument passed to subsequent calls to pfmt() or lfmt(), string will be used as severity. Passing a null string removes the severity.

RETURN VALUES

Upon successful completion, addsev() returns 0. Otherwise it returns−1.

USAGE

Only the standard severities are automatically displayed for the locale in effect at runtime. An application must provide the means for displaying locale-specific versions of add-on severities. Add-on severities are only effective within the applications defining them.

EXAMPLES

Example 1 Example of addsev() function.

The following example

#define Panic 5
setlabel(“APPL”);
setcat(“my_appl”);
addsev(Panic, gettxt(“:26”, “PANIC”));
/* … */
lfmt(stderr, MM_SOFT|MM_APPL|PANIC, “:12:Cannot locate database\n”);

will display the message to stderr and forward to the logging service

APPL: PANIC: Cannot locate database
