PERROR(3) BSD Programmer's Manual PERROR(3)
perror - write error messages to standard error
#include <stdio.h> void perror(const char *string);
The perror() function looks up the language-dependent error message string affiliated with an error number and writes it, followed by a new- line, to the standard error stream. If the argument string is not the NULL pointer and is not zero length, it is prepended to the message string and separated from it by a colon and a space (': '). Otherwise, only the error message string is printed. The contents of the error message string are the same as those returned by strerror() with argument errno.
