The perror() function has been around for years and has always been fairly succinct in its output. The important information is the actual errno value. It is a fairly simple matter to write your own function to display the value and the error message (see strerror(3) - Linux manual page[^]).


Even old dogs learn something new occasionally. I was certain that perror() would be locale aware, but it seems not (which could be an issue if you are depending on exact text matches in your output). While researching that, I came across the GNU error() function, which might help the OP. See about half-way down this page: Error Messages (The GNU C Library)
