NAME addseverity - introduce new severity classes
SYNOPSIS #include <fmtmsg.h> int addseverity(int severity, const char *s); Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)): addseverity(): _SVID_SOURCE
DESCRIPTION This function allows the introduction of new severity classes which can be addressed by the severity argument of the fmtmsg(3) function. By default, that function knows only how to print messages for severity 0-4 (with strings (none), HALT, ERROR, WARNING, INFO). This call attaches the given string s to the given value severity. If s is NULL, the severity class with the numeric value severity is removed. It is not possible to over‐ write or remove one of the default severity classes. The severity value must be nonnega‐ tive.
RETURN VALUE Upon success, the value MM_OK is returned. Upon error, the return value is MM_NOTOK. Possible errors include: out of memory, attempt to remove a nonexistent or default sever‐ ity class.
VERSIONS addseverity() is provided in glibc since version 2.1.
