#1543 closed bug (fixed)

Check libroot for Correct Use of errno (easy)

Reported by: bonefish Owned by: kaoutsis
Priority: normal Milestone: R1

Has a Patch: no Platform: All


While BeOS API functions usually return error codes directly, POSIX functions just indicate an error by a special return value (often -1 or a NULL pointer) and set errno to the actual error code. Our libroot code (src/system/libroot, particularly the posix subdirectory) needs to be reviewed in this respect.

  • several additions to posix functions have been made regarding setting errno

to the past 3 months (not only by me); (i don't remember exactly the particular functions names)

  • i have scan the posix subdirectory) for errno twice; but if it isn't urgent,

i would like to check again. I think we should leave this ticket open a little longer.

as far as my knowledge goes, i couldn't find any other cases. In my opinion we should close this ticket, and if someone finds a missing case, could open a ticket with that particular case.
